AFTER operating their restaurant in Jalan 222, Petaling Jaya, for two decades, A. Kunasingam and his wife closed the doors of their ?second home? in December last year with a heavy heart.
The couple who runs Krishna Curry House, were a household name back in the 1990s when there were only a handful of Indian restaurants.
“We have been running our business in the same place for 25 years and most of our friends came from there,” said Kunasingam, better known as Kuna to his customers.
Late last year, he received a call from his landlord notifying him that there would be an increase in their rental.
“We could not afford the high rental and chose to find a new place instead,”he said.
The couple moved to a new place a day after they closed their much-loved restaurant on Dec 31, ensuring their customers would not miss his wife R. Pushparani’s home-cooked dishes.
Pushparani, who is an avid cook, said she was asked to open a restaurant after Kuna saw her little catering business among her friends flourish.
“It was a small business that I and some good friends did over the weekend.
“We take small orders and deliver food to homes for a certain occasion,” said Pushparani, 65.
Kuna then told her if she wanted to be successful she should open a restaurant.
Pushparani would be at the restaurant every morning from 6.30am making sure the kitchen is in order with occasional help from her three children.
Her staple dishes then were Chicken Varuval, Mutton Varuval, Sambal Prawns, Fish Head Curry, Mushroom Peratal and Stuffed Squid.
As the business grew, she introduced more dishes such as Crab Cutlet, Crab Curry, Chicken Briyani and Salted Fish Curry.
Today, the restaurant, which occupies two units in Section 51A, still serves her popular dishes with new additions to the menu.
During the review, we tried the Claypot Mutton, which was the current bestseller.
To ensure her customers do not get bored of the same dishes, Pushparani introduces a special dish on certain days.
For instance, every Wednesday, one gets a taste of Salted Fish Curry, on Thursdays she serves Lamb Chop Curry with Green Peas, while on Sundays customers get to try Mutton Briyani.
Those who enjoy vegetarian dishes should pay a visit on Fridays as the restaurant offers a special banana leaf meal for RM5.50.
It offers three different vegetables, four yogurt condiments, chilli, mint coconut acar and onion raita.
Customers will also get a serving of rasam, mori (sour milk) and payasam (sweet sago drink).
