CLICK HERE for this week’s fluffy, spicy episode!
This week, our Makan Kaki Chef Anthony Yeoh takes us to Tekka Market for his usual Prata fix. Run by a cute, friendly Malay couple, Prata Saga Sambal Berlada serves up delicious fried pastries with a little twist. In a world of crispy-style tissue pratas, this is one stall that does things old-school.
Soft, fluffy (Pakcik smashes each square pastry with his hands to fluff them up after frying), with a touch of surface crispness, this traditional prata stands apart from others with its accompanying curries. Why? The answer is in the name of the stall! The flavour of the dish is enhanced with a dollop of spicy-sweet SAMBAL!
The sambal completely changes the taste of the curry – choose from chicken or fish – and gives it a unique lift. So if you think you’ve tried everything you needed to try when it comes to prata, pay this stall a visit! Sambal prata is certainly a first for us Makan Kakis! And actually, even if you don’t fancy the sambal, just the plain prata is of incredible quality and definitely worth a try.
Above is 2 plain pratas with fish curry and sambal, but as you can see below, they serve so many other variations, including onion, egg, cheese and even murtabak!
