A slice of malaysia …..

Chennai is getting introduced to various international cuisines these days, Pelita Nasi Kandar is a Malaysian speciality restaurant. The meaning of Nasi Kandar, is supposed to be, Rice (Nasi in Malay) and Yoke (Kandar in Malay) and this is a traditional dish with the origins from Indian Muslims.

I’ve just had the crushed ice with ice cream and others don’t suit my taste buds because of the Non-veg content. πŸ™‚

  3. The place kind of grows on you… I believe etymologically ‘kandar’ is closer to ‘shoulder’ – so the man with the rice bags across his shoulder would sit down and light a ‘pelita’ – a small candle! At least that was the story I was told the first time at PNK, many many moons ago!

    Ram : Thanks for more light Shantaram …..
