Komala's Restaurant, Serangoon Road

Woah, this place (330-332 Serangoon Road, tel: 6299 4464) felt like a fast food restaurant with air conditioning that can barely be felt. Of course, it would be of the Indian vegetarian variety where one makes an order from the counter with the menu displayed on the panel at the cashier and gets a ticket which is subsequently used to collect your order at another service counter. I've walked by their outlets on various occasions at different places before, but this would be the first time I'm actually eating here. Here's a masala dosai meal and a North Indian rice meal which are a couple of the set meals that they have.

The dosai didn't taste that freshly made. It wasn't crispy at the edges and the accompanying idli was a tad more salty then I had expected. The vadai was dense, but soft and I thought it pretty good. The accompanying sauces was pretty good, but the mint yoghurt dip was quite salty. The rice meal which wasn't quite comparable to the one at Komala Vilas comes with some chewy naan, a gulab jamun which was surprisingly milky and quite good despite the fact that I normally avoid them for their excessive sweetness. There was a stewed cauliflower, some raita and a paneer butter masala which wasn't as great as others which I've had. Another weird thing was the presence of croutons in the rice. Where did those come from??

All in all, despite the fast food appearance it wasn't too bad. But I think there must be better options in the vicinity.
