Casuarina Curry @ Macpherson Road - Ondeh Ondeh Prata, A New Way To Appreciate Prata

IMG_9926ed

Casuarina Curry is a household name in Singapore known for its prata, murtabak, roti john, thosai and briyani, offering a variety of South and North Indian cuisine. Recently the business expanded with 2 more branches at Sixth Avenue and Macpherson Road, on top of their flagship outlet at Casuarina.

I specially head down to their Macpherson outlet to try out their new invitation, Ondeh Ondeh Prata. Before that let's have the a cup of the Teh Tarik ($1.20) and their Plaiin Prata ($1.20 each).

Plain Prata 3/5

Unfortunately my Plain Prata was stale, the restaurant did not serve me a freshly made one. It also has a strong taste of margarine. This is definitely not the standard I have done.

The highlight and the reason why I am here is the Ondeh Ondeh Prata ($4.90). What exactly is it? It is actually made up of crispy tissue prata, folded into a parcel. In it, there are pandan jelly cubes, a scoop of coconut ice cream, shredded coconut and gula melaka to be drizzled over it before eating.

Initially I was a bit skeptical but after trying it, I enjoyed it a lot. The combination in terms of flavours and textures work harmoniously. It has brought prata appreciation to a new level, stepping away from the tradition. It is not about spreading some chocolate syrup over the prata and maybe adding a few slices of banana. This is an execution that is worthy to call it a real dessert prata dish.
