My Papa's Naan- Best Tandoori Chicken and Naan Bread in the KLCC Area
Words and Photos by Araceli and Jorge Arismendi
In October, 2012, in the heart of the KLCC area, steps away from the Petronas Towers, a new and delightful stall was born. On the return home from work to my downtown condo, I noticed a huge sign stating, "The Best Tandoori and Naan in KL is now open!" This was the perfect opportunity for me to try this flavorful North Indian poultry dish. My husband and I quickly parked our car, threw our work bags in the trunk, and rushed around the corner to My Papa's Naan. Situated in the Black and White Kopitiam restaurant, the cozy, al fresco dining area was simply charming. I started to become overly excited due to the wafting aromas of tandoori and naans. Cayenne pepper, red chili powder, and among other spices tickled my nose and the anticipation to try the best tandoori in town became intense. Luckily, the owner Mr. Ragunathan Marthammuthu (Ragu) was present so I began to inquire about the development of his tandoori shop, attempting to distract myself from the short wait and arrival of my 7 ringgit dinner. Ragu was more than happy to explain the business and history of My Papa's Naan.
This tandoori chicken recipe has been passed down through many generations within the same family. Last year, Ragu decided to give the 20 year old recipe a brand hence the name My Papa's Naan was created.
