Malabar at Crows Nest

I've never been a fan of Indian food - with the exception of cheese naan (which I was told recently wasn't traditionally Indian - what a disappointment!).

Beverly and Lisa however have been raving abut their favourite Indian place in Crows Nest, Malabar, so in the spirit of trying new things, I agreed to come along for some new flavours.

I was pleasantly surprised by the delicious food - although I shouldn't have been surprised since B & L are usually right when it comes to good restaurants. I was also pleased by the variety of vegetarian food on offer.

The interior - very dark unfortunately which made it not optimal for taking photos.


Colourful menu.


The house specialty is Dosai - B & L have been raving about it for a while now so I had to try it out.


The Dosai - a thin pancake wrapped around lightly spiced potatoes. Very, very tasty.


Hello there Lisa!


Patti Samosas - filled with spiced potatoes and peas.


Malabar Paratha - some kind of fried doughy bread. Delicious!


Bev in food heaven.


Nomming isn't always a graceful thing.



Dessert - pistachio ice cream.


I can't remember what this was called but it was a dessert with cottage cheese I believe, deep fried into dough somehow.



We adjourned to Bev's house afterwards for ferret play and internet surfing.

The ferrets REALLY want to get on Cute Overload ... "Ein, get out of my WAY!"

That was sooooooo damn good! I'm definitely getting the No. 3 Dosai from now on. Heehee, and it was big enough to look through it!
