The Batang Kali Bamboo Briyani started as a catering business. Due to overwhelming response and advise from their customers they ventured into the restaurant business a few years ago (2017). This method of cooking briyani was learnt in Chenai during a holiday back in 2013. Till today they still use spices from India to retain the original taste. The difference is that here in Malaysia curry is poured onto the rice but in India they do not do so.
Batang Kali Bamboo Briyani became famous because of the taste and large size seafood served (lobster briyani, king crab briyani, etc.). Other signatures include mutton varuval briyani, and lamb shank briyani. Prices depends on the weight of the ingredients used. As an example, one can expect to pay anywhere from RM100.00 to RM300.00 for lobster briyani.
While most bamboo briyani restaurants cook their briyani rice inside thing average size bamboo, the Batang Kali Bamboo Briyani cooks their briyani inside big fat bamboo. The reason for doing so is that the bigger the bamboo, the more flavour it adds to the briyani. Big thick bamboo also retains a lot more moisture as compared to thinner and narrower bamboo. This allows the briyani and all the ingredients inside to be cooked well without being dry, and the rice to have good testure.
