When it comes to Indian cuisine, one food item that we constantly find ourselves going back to is chapati. Soft, chewy and gritty, this popular unleavened flatbread is incredibly addictive and goes well with any curry dish.
There are many places in Singapore that serve up some pretty solid chapati but out of the lot, we always find ourselves gravitating back towards Azmi Restaurant. The chapati here is made fresh on the spot daily and it pairs well with the other dishes that Azmi Restaurant has to offer. Some of these dishes include fragrant plates of Mutton Keema, Chicken Masala and Goat Brain.
For just a dollar, you can get yourself a massive piece of freshly made chapati. To fill you up, we recommend getting 2-3 pieces per pax as 1 piece is usually not enough.
We love using the chapati to scoop up the gravy from saucier dishes and one of our favourites to go with it is a sloppy plate of Mutton Keema (S$3.50) The Mutton Keema here has a nice gamey flavour that isn’t too overpowering and despite it looking very flat on the provided styrofoam plate, the keema is chock full of mutton bits that give the dish a nice bite.
Another mutton dish that we are a fan of is their Goat Bone (S$5) which features pieces of goat bone that have been cooked to the point where the remaining meat just effortlessly falls off. The mutton provides the gravy with a nice gamey touch and if you love mutton as much as we do, we recommend sucking on the bones to get the most out of the dish.
If you don’t enjoy food with a gamey flavour, have a go at their Chicken Curry (Special) (S$4) which comes with a massive slab of chicken that is doused in a rich, spicy gravy. Dunk the chapati in the curry and savour that glorious gravy on its own or wrap up some of the chicken in a chapati and eat it as a whole; either method will leave you satisfied and craving for more.
