Sangeetha Vegetarian Restaurant, Lebuh Ampang

Been ages since I've met Angie, and when we finally did managed to agree on a day for lunch, she suggested Sangeetha.
It was a warm day, but she felt like having indian food, so Sangeetha, with it's comfortable setting and cooling air-con seems like the perfect choice.
The menu looks confusing and we did the shortcut by order 2 sets which consists of a bit of everything :p
Got our drinks first..
My Mango Lassi (RM7)
Thick layer of yogurt mixed with fresh mango puree. Nice and rich, slightly sourish- definitely perked up my appetite for my meal. Angie's Triveni drink (RM7.50) was recommended by the manager. It was refreshing, tasted like a fusion version of ginger ale.
Chilled tomato soup before the meal..
Although the soup was thick, the tomato flavour was subtle, not sour at all. Rather creamy, the more I drank it, the tastier it gets.
The Sangeetha Set (RM12)
Loved the colours and the aroma, so much vegetarian dishes (and served with rice and roti canai), I really didnt know where to start. I cant recall the names of all the dishes, but it's southern indian dishes with a combination of vegetables such as long bean, cauliflower, beansprouts, dhall, potatoes etc. Sugee (the bright orange bowl) was the dessert. I feel that Sangeetha's take on southern indian food lighter, not as salty and rich, which I was happy with.
I prefer the Punjabi Set (RM16) though..
The set was a combo of spiced rice, naan and an assortment of dishes (less than Sangeetha set though). The masala vegetable got my vote, it was ultra delish- it was very hard to believe that there's no meat in that dish. The palak paneer was pretty nice too, goes well with the rice. I love the sweet meat too (the square cube)- I cant recall the name- but it tasted like a compact version of chinese dragon beard candy.
There's still a number of interesting dishes I'll like to try here, so, am definitely coming back soon :).
Sangeetha Veg Restaurant is located at 65, Lebuh Ampang, 40-46, Palace Hotel Plaza, KL.

lebuh ampang is pretty close to my office on jln sultan ismail, so this does look appealing, especially the punjabi set. also, air-conditioning is a MUST for me when it comes to indian and thai food, since i sweat really easily :D

I'm a big fan of indian vegetarian food, but I have yet to try the food at Sangeetha's. Parking must be a horror, I reckon?

those look like real vegetarian dishes with genuine greens ,
not tofu ! we always say Indian cuisine is the most traditional of Malaysian cuisine , almost unchanged since Asoka n taj Mahal. while Malay cuisine has changed beyond description, if only they can extend this philosophy to errr ...
religion 2

My favourite Chinese New Year food (though you sometimes find it all year round) is the Dragon Beard Candy, an ancient Chinese Emperor’s Dessert. It’s made into very sweet thin strands and sometimes filled with peanuts.
If you’ve never tried it, you simply have to! The only place I know to find this online is http://www.geocities.jp/family_hong_kong/English/Dragon_Beard_Candy_index.htm.
