Batu Caves, what breakfast?
Hi guys this is Johnson for JohnsonMalaysia.com, welcome to Malaysia I’m a local tour guide in Malaysia. When you are in Kuala Lumpur, one place you can’t miss out from your itinerary is Batu Caves. This Hindu Cave temple dedicated to lord Murugan as main deity was started about 130 years ago by an Indian leader, Mr. Tamboosamy Pillay. (please watch my video in 3 parts for more on Batu Caves)

After walking up 272 flights of steps and venture into the caves in cambers. Our energy level can come down because heavy perspiring. Malaysia humidity is high over 90%. A good refreshment can recharge you. I don’t say you can’t grab your fizzy drinks, but check out the local young coconut water. The Local Young coconut water has cooling effect, both externally and internally. You could get it US1.2 at most restaurants or one at near the foot of 42 meter high Murugan Shrine.
Guys let us go and grab some breakfast, In my video I’m showing a row of restaurants, these are all vegetarian restaurants. Being Malaysian I am blessed to enjoy so many different types of food. Let us go into one of the restaurants for local Indian breakfast, I usually go to No 10 Rani Restaurant but you could go to any one of them.
- Puli Paniaram
The first dish we see is Puli Paniaram, this is slightly larger than a ping-pong. This batter ball is made from fermented lentils with added shallot and some cut chillies. You can have them without any dippers. Invented to have it on its own, so the farmers can have it like on the go snack.
- Pall Appam
The next is a pancake call “Pall Appam”. This may look easy to do by turning the small wok in a circular motion. It is aren’t like that my aunty had a skill which others in family could do it, what happens most of the time the batter will get stuck to the wok and won’t get the smooth perfect crispy and soft inner pan cake. This milk pancake is taken with coconut milk with bit sweet or brown sugar.
Poori is a deep-fried pancake that looks like golden dark brown like blown up sauce plate. This is taken with think yellow, greenish potato gravy. I like to have this, but I keep myself away because you may become addicted to it and end up eating more.
- Tosai / Dosa
The Dosa or in Malaysia we call it Tosai, my Malay friends call it the same. The batter used to make Tosai is same the batter used for Puli paniaram and Pall appam but the differences are the texture one is lighter than the other. There are varieties Tosai s, the other common is Rawa Tosai which non fermented. If you have some stomach upset can try this.
- Roti Canai
The last dish, all-time favorite Malaysian dish, the Roti Canai. It came to Malaysia from South India. The deliciousness of the Roti depends on the skill of flipping, spinning and flopping the Roti to get the maximum layers so it can be crispy and soft as possible. This is a Malaysian normal breakfast it goes with Tea Tarik or pull tea.
So, guy when you are in Batu Caves, try out these breakfasts and let me know what you think about it.
