Tiger Jit Singh Chapati in Pudu Kuala Lumpur KL JK1416

Hungry in Kuala Lumpur, Nava suggested that we drop by Tiger Jit Singh Capati since we were shopping in Pudu. Nava said that even guests visiting from India, specifically said they want to eat at Tiger Jit's chapati stall. Needless to say, I was thrilled by Nava's idea ;-D

Tiger Jit Singh Capati is along Jalan San Peng in Pudu, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It's one of the street side stalls along a row of popular eateries just below the public housing flats.

Bobby, son of Tiger Jit Singh runs the very well kept street side stall now. Tiger Jit Singh, Bobby's dad started the stall right here at this same spot over forty years ago.

Each and every chapati is freshly hand made here, the old way at the stall.

Bobby said Tiger Jit Singh Capati uses only good quality atta (whole wheat) flour to make their chapati.

Bobby is very proud that Tiger Ajit Singh Capati still makes their own ghee.

I am surprised as I have not heard of anyone making their own ghee till now. Bobby said they make their ghee using fresh local cow milk.

Tiger Jit Singh Capati serves lots of side dishes, curries and dhal to go with their chapati.

There are too many side dishes to mention. I just want to highlight this fried stuffed bitter gourd - I have a special love for bitter gourd :- D The bitter gourd is sweet not bitter lah, and the soft grainy filling is sweet savoury not spicy also. Try this unique side dish :-D

"Drum stick". I didn't get this this time round. Definitely shall try it at my next visit :-D



Here's what we did get. We had many different side dishes and teh tarik (frothed pulled tea) with our chapati. Lots of curry dishes and dhal, and they are just mildly spicy. Nothing very sharp, so any one, young and old can enjoy these.

Each one of us started politely with one chapati each.

The best way to enjoy chapati and dhal is with our fingers.

Our favourite dhal (not in the picture) was the one made with mashed canned sardine mixed with chopped onions, mildly hot spices and probably ghee as it has a savoury sweet taste with sardine flavour.

Yummay!

Tiger Jit Singh's freckled chapati is thick, tender and moist unlike the cardboard thin, stiff and dry chapati we usually get. Tiger Jit's chapati is slightly fluffy to the bite with a soft bouncy stretchy chew. Tiger's chapati also has a slight savoury sweet taste from the fresh ghee. 

Love it :-D

Not surprisingly Needless to say, all of us tambah (add) one more chapati each :-D

As we ate, we could hear the trains rumbling by. Tiger Jit Singh Capati is right at the door step of Pudu LRT station.

->> When you visit KL and want to enjoy authentic local food with a down-to-earth comfortable ambiance, Tiger Jit Singh Capati is definitely one of the places to visit.

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