Agneey's Cuisine Indian Restaurant in Tampoi, Johor Bahru
My friend Jo-Hann introduced me to Agneey's Cuisine Indian Restaurant - he has been eating here since his childhood. Actually, Agneey's Cuisine is an old name in Johor Bahru that needs no introduction for the Indian community here.
Agneey's Cuisine is the place I will bring guests for a good Indian meal in a clean and cosy, no frills environment (with air con), at reasonable prices.
I've been to Agneey's three times so far and these are what we had.
The plain kosong dosai or thosai. Crispy at the edges, moist and soft inside, pleasant wheat aroma. Perfect for dipping and soaking up the three signature steel bowls of curry gravy that come with it. Impossible to get tired of this Indian staple.
Our poori. A puffed up fried wheat ball with hot air. Ours deflated too quickly for me to take a picture of it in its full blown glory - this picture of it in it's half deflated state.
One of the lovely chutneys that come with the poori. This one is made with chopped potatoes and stewed in curry and spices. So good, I ate this on its own.
Roti canai (prata) kosong. Crispy, not overly greasy. So basic, so good!
Masala chicken thigh, yummy! Plump chicken thigh wrapped in a thick gravy made with a blend of numerous spices. Dye and aromas seeped deeply into my fingers - I had to clean them by sucking my fingers to get rid of the reddish colour and fragrance. Now, this is truly finger licking good!
I love Indian bitter gourd. So, these bitter gourd fried with chili and spices is a "must order" for me. Sliced pulpy gourd fried to a crisp outside with a slight tenderness remaining inside.
More bitter gourd, this time fried with batter and fragrant curry leaves. Told you, I love this :P
I am also a sotong (squid) lover and would always order some whenever it is available. I like the bouncy chewiness of sotong and the tangy spicy stew it is cooked in.
Curried mashed potatoes.
A dollop of sambal chili.
Vada, the versatile ubiquitous Indian "donut". I like to eat this with a raw green chili pepper. Yums!
Agneey's masala tea - full bodied and with robust flavours. No bubbly froth?! No problem. This tea tastes great.
So far, I've been to Agneey's Cuisine three times and I have been eating just the simple dishes from their extensive menu. Every time, I am pleased with Agneey's delicious food. I am sure I will be back at Agneey's many more times to try their other dishes.
