A Visit To Malaysian Mamak Stalls

Recipe to limit your calorie intake.

1. Eat a thosai with dhall, fish curry, chutney & a separate plate of sambal. Don't know what sambal is?

2. Down it with hot 'Teh See - kurang manis' (Malay word for tea with Evaporated Milk - less sweet) to warm your heart after a cold wet day.

3. Watch the ESPN shown on the TV there for 15 minutes.

4. Hang around longer enjoying the evening or late night crowd. Read the day's daily post which you have no time for during the day.

5. Now finally, your food's being digested and it's time to pay and move on.

To be concise, thosai is an Indian crispy bread made of rice flour. It has a subtle tinge of sourish taste to it and it's eaten with gravies. An all time favourite of mine and many other Malaysians.

Teh tarik (pulled tea)-Tea with Sweetened Condensed Milk (SCM) pulled to mix, a symbolic drink of the Malaysian mamak stall. However, my preference is still with Teh See, not too sweet to my taste. I will write a blog on the SCM processing plant in one of my future post and tell you the basic procesing of it. F&N Dairies is still the number brand in the country.

The mamak drinks counter. Those are the soft packs of Nescafe, Ovaltine, Milo, and not too sure with one at the right most.
