Banana Leaf Rice – Acha Curry House


Always plenty of vegetables – 4 types


Crab and salted fish curries


Crispy Fried Bitter Gourd with curry leaves


Moru Iced


Acha Curry House did not only serves the normal fish, chicken and dhall curries but instead, they opted for a more unique approach which includes salted fish, onion, and crab curry, which somehow works splendidly. Ask any customer, they wouldn’t have any regrets. As for me I love the salted fish curry and have yet to try the onion curry.

Another great addition to have with their banana leaf rice is the ikan bilis sambal which gives you a great burst of spice and flavour with just one spoonful, although in a weird way you’ll want even more when sweat starts pouring out of your glands. The fried bitter gourd are also great as they are always crunchy.

Their fried tinggiri fish as well as their mutton maruval also deserve honourable mention.

We finished off with a glass of Iced Moru(buttermilk with spices) which was very refreshing for a warm day.

Banana Leaf Rice – Restoran Sri Nirwana Maju




A typical banana leaf meal consists of white rice served on a yele sapede (banana leaf) with an assortment of three vegetables, pickles, a selection of curry dishes such as meen kari (fish curry), koli kari (chicken curry), dhal (boiled lentils) and papadum (Indian crackers). Accompanying dishes for the banana leaf rice include lamb, fish, chicken and beef dishes; the chicken masala and deep-fried squid is especially good here.

It will usually be crowded no matter what time it is, so waiting for a table is norm. There’s a reason why it’s crowded more often than not and that’s because the food is good!

The best way to enjoy your banana leaf rice is to dispense with any form of utensils and dig in using just your hands. Use only your right hand as the left hand is considered to be unclean and reserved only for bathroom activities. Sometimes I don’t understand why some people still insist on using fork and spoon.
