indian apam at bangsar, kl...

Today for lunch Sunshine and I decided to have something light, so we settled on some Indian appams at Om Shakti Chelo's Appam Stall @ Bangsar, KL. They have been around for quite some time and used to run their stall in front of Strudels, Lucky Garden, Bangsar. Now they are located directly behind TMC.

They offer quite an extensive array of Indian goodies like tosai (5 types), idli, chapati and kuihs (curry puff, vadai, kesari, pulut inti, stuffed taufoo & kuih gulung) but are more famous for their appams. There are 3 types you can choose from which are plain, sweet & brown sugar. Do note that everything on offer is vegetarian.

As an appetizer we had some curry puffs (RM0.40) and vadais (RM0.40). Always loved their curry puffs which are full of spicy potato filling. Sunshine tried the taufoo stuffed with bean sprouts and cucumber (RM0.50) and commented that its yummy as their taufoo and stuffing were fresh. Their vadai isn't bad as well but rather oily.

After whalloping the kuihs we settled on 1 brown sugar (RM1.20) and 1 sweet (RM1) appam. Their appams are always of consistant quality and taste. The outsides are nice and crispy while the center is full of coconut gravy goodness. Its never too sweet and the center just about runny. Do note that their appam is not the South Indian type whereby you dip in a bowl of coconut milk but has the milk incorporated in the appam itself, which comes from Sri Lanka.

Om Shakti Chelo is only closed on Sundays and open for lunch and tea. Not sure about timing but I have been there mid morning (11ish) to late evening (6ish). So if you are ever in the mood for something light, do head over there and give it a try.
