TUCKED in the middle of Brickfields, Seni Sattisorru is not hard to notice with a large number of customers flocking to the stall at the Tun Sambanthan Complex.
It has been in Brickfields for three years and usually sees crowds during lunch and dinner hours every day.
As its name suggests, the stall serves satti sorru (claypot rice).
While the ingredients and rice are cooked together in the Chinese-style claypot dish, this stall’s version involves sauteing onions, tomatoes, curry leaves and masala before the protein is added in.
Once the meat is cooked, rice is added and stirred together with the masala mixture.
The combination is cooked for a while longer before being served, resulting in every rice grain being coated with curry.
The piping-hot food is served in aluminium-lined pots which help retain heat.
There is a variety of claypot meals to choose from.
Customer can pick their choice of protein such as chicken, prawn, mutton, fish and crab or a combination of two ingredients.
Besides the claypot meals, the stall also has a selection of soups.
There is also an array of appetising side dishes such as chicken 65, fried squid, fried prawns and eggs.
Banana leaf meals, thiruvizha sapadu, sufficient to be shared between two of three people, are also available with servings of rice, vegetable as well as chicken or mutton curry for options.
The food at Seni Sattisorru is quite affordable.
The chicken claypot rice is priced at RM12, mutton and squid claypot cost RM15 each and the prawn and fish claypot are RM18 each.
Budget-conscious diners will be pleased to know that the stall does not stinge on the meat and each meal is satisfying. Drinks are free, too, with meals.
Diners can also choose between small and large claypot meals.
Seni Sattisorru is located at the Tun Sambanthan Complex, Jalan Tun Sambanthan, Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur.
It opens from 11.30am to 10pm from Tuesdays to Sundays.
