Enjoyed our North Indian and Indian Chinese lunch today at Copper Chimney at Syed Alwi Road directly opposite Mustafa Centre in Singapore's Little India.

Serangoon Road at the heart of Singapore's Little India was dressed in colourful Deepavali finery 😊 Copper Chimney is at Syed Alwi Road near Farrer Park MRT station and City Square Mall.

We started with a Crispy Rumali Roti. Its an unleavened bread. Uniquely at Copper Chimney, Chef Jamil toasts the thin rolled and stretched dough on an upturned wok so the crispy browned bread has a dome shape like a big hat. No other restaurant in Singapore serves this Crispy Rumali Roti.

The crispy browned big hat is brushed with mildly savoury spicy masala sauce and topped with chopped fresh onion, tomato, and coriander.

The best way to enjoy Crispy Rumali Roti is with hands. The thin crispy bread reminded me of thin crust pizza topped with chopped vegetables. Crispy Rumali Roti is non greasy and nutritious, so this is a very tasty and healthful dish. The crispy bread cracks and snaps like brittle biscuit with every bite, sending crumbs and chopped vegetable down to the table top 😄

We ordered Sichuan Chicken (price SGD12.00++). We were slightly disappointed at the looks and joked that it reminded us of dishes from Panda Express, the American Chinese fast food chain.

I thought we gonna waste some calories.

But, it turned out that I enjoyed this dish very much.

Finger size pieces of chicken were marinated, coated with batter and deep fried. The fried chicken were stewed and served in a savoury spicy masala. Though the thick savoury spicy masala was robust, the batter shielded the piece of chicken meat inside which remained tender and juicy. The best thing I like about this dish was the natural sweet flavour in the juicy chicken. There was more natural chicky sweetness in this Chindian dish than some Hainanese chicken in Singapore.... 😋

Chicken lovers must order this Chindian dish.

Mutton Roganjosh (price SGD13.00++).

The tender juicy chunks of Australian mutton stewed in a thick robust savoury spicy masala still had a gamey taste which I like.

Mutton Roganjosh is perfect with simple steamed basmati rice. The fluffy rice adds sweetness to the rich savoury spicy dish.

Vegetable Jaipuri (price SGD10.00++).

Homely mixed vegetables stewed in creamy savoury spicy masala. The peas, chopped carrots, cauliflower etc were soft but still had some juicy crunch. It's a nice dish to round up the meaty mains.

Must get this house made Pista Kulfi for dessert (price SGD7.00++). It's icy cold creamy milky sweet ice cream with bits of nutty pistachio.

Nice.

👉 I like Copper Chimney's Northern Indian and Indian Chinese restaurant. The food prepared by experienced Indian chefs is delicious as the ingredients are fresh and the well balanced flavours are at just the right intensity level for me. The comfortable, simply furnished restaurant has a nice casual ambiance which I like for everyday meals. The reasonable prices are affordable too.

I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints as it makes this blog better :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is unethical in the same way as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
