This culinary institution has been serving homely South Indian fare since August 1999.
.
Of note is this staple unleavened flatbread, smoky and grainy savoury bready sweet in taste, with a slightly fluffy soft texture, and a light dusting of wheat flour.
.
Served with the vegetable-of-the-day, in this case a soft stewed yellow pigeon pea and spinach curry, bright with vegetal earthy sweet savoury salty spice flavours.

This aging stall is small, but still attracts a queue for its tasty South Indian dishes, serving quietly since 1986.
.
Amongst them is this chapati set, 2 pieces of soft chewy unleavened flatbread with grainy savoury sweet smoky flavour, nicely warm.
.
Served with a delicious potato masala that is soft with bright earthy starchy sweet spice in flavour; and a tender chickpea / chana masala with savoury salty spicy earthy notes.

Homely meals are the draw in this casual eatery, which has been serving since March 1996.
.
They're reowned for their curries and breads, the perfect complementing pair. Here, their chapati is served in a set, with 2 fluffy soft discs of unleavened flatbread, alongside a creamy dhal.
.
Has mild fragrant bready grainy sweet savoury flavour, with slightly more of a chew than elsewhere. Naturally, goes well with curry.

Their freshly made unleavened flatbread chapati has a soft chewy texture that tears easily, and hot off the grill, has a lovely smoky bready grainy savoury sweet aroma.
.
Largely unchanged since patriarch Iftekhar Ahmad set up the stall in the 1960s, his grandsons today carry on the traditional receipe, making chapati using only wheat flour, water, and secret kneading techniques know only to their family.
.
The most popular pairing is with mutton keema (SGD $3.50), a rich curry of minced mutton, diced potatoes, and garden peas, bold with meaty savoury salty spicy notes. Stewed for up to 3 hours, so succulent.

There is an enjoyable appeal for freshly made bread, hot off the oven. This near universal appeal is the reason why this stall draws a queue at meal times.
.
Hot off the grill after some quick tossing, their fresh unleavened flatbread chapati has a fine grainy surface from a dusting of wheat flour, and a tender chewy feel.
.
Has a slight smoky aroma with grainy savoury sweet bready flavour. A side of juicy cucumbers lend a refreshing vegetal sweet flavour contrast, while a minced coriander pesto lends a bright vegetal herbal bitter sweet flavour.

Their rendition carries lovely char marks from the grill, the enticing smoky aroma complementing its grainy bready savoury sweet flavour.
.
With a soft fluffy chewy texture, their chapati is great at picking up morsels of meat, vegetables, or curry. Yum.
.
Typically sold in sets of 2 pieces, it can be quite filling.

Rolled with whole wheat flour, then baked on a skillet.
.
While texture of the chapati is slightly fimer than elsewhere, flavour is delicately grainy savoury sweet.
.
Being thin, it's meant to be used for scooping up ingredients (instead of absorbing curries).
