Deepavali special: A hearty, Fierce briyani and banana leaf meal

Ever since they opened their doors, Fierce Curry House has been delighting fans of banana leaf rice meals with their delectable Indian fares.  Thali sets and biryani seems to be their hot sellers – on any given day, you can see tables filled with happy diners munching on these spiced meals.

Bir-Nana Sets

At Fierce Curry House, diners can actually have the best of both regular Thali sets and biryani rice with their Bir-Nana Sets.  A combination of both, diners get to choose their choice of Biryani which is served with 5 vegetable dishes of the day, resam, chicken curry or vathal kulambu, raita, achar, pappadam and kesari.  These Bir-Nana sets are priced from RM20-RM26 per set, depending on the choice of biryani rice selected.

Their biryani served is of the dhum style where the spiced rice and marinated meats are sealed tightly in metal bowls with pastry dough to lock in the aromas and flavours.  The biryani is served with raita, resam and chicken or vegetables curry.

For a simpler and more economical meal, Fierce’s South and North Indian Vegetarian Thali Sets (RM10) remain incredibly popular.  Diners get a choice of white rice or parboiled rice or chapati with five vegetable dishes of the day (including fried bittergourd), sambar, vathal kulambu (vegetables curry), resam, pappadam, salted fried chilli and kesari.

Orange Prawns
Butter Chicken

Besides the sets, Fierce Curry House’s a la carte menu offers a good variety of other Indian specialities.  If rice is not your preference, their naans are perfect to go with the thick creamy curries like Butter Chicken and Orange Prawns.  The perfect balance of spices in these dishes helps to tone down the creamy and nutty nuances of the gravies.  Vegetables dishes like my favourite Aloo Bindhi – a stir-fry mixture of potatoes and okra goes well with both rice and naans.

Tandoori Chicken

The tandoor oven yields not only fluffy breads and naans; the grilled meats are even more tantalising.  Without fail, the Tandoori Chicken gets the most applause for the spot-on marinades and tender juiciness of the meat.

Chicken Kebab Palette

For some fuss-free enjoyment, take on the boneless thighs in the Chicken Kebab Palette where you can check out four differently-marinated versions, namely the tandoori, malai, hariyali and kalmi flavours.  The creamy cheesy flavours of the “malai” kebab are rich and satisfying, while the refreshing mint of “hariyali” is pleasing and the ginger garlic paste in the “kalmi” piece gives it a nice delicate kick.

Fierce Curry House is open daily 10.30am till 10.30pm – it’s even open during Deepavali!
