The humble roti prata has come a long way since its beginnings as a simple flatbread we ate either with curry or sugar.
These days, you can find all kinds of prata – salted egg prata, eggs benedict prata, chicken floss prata, maggi mee prata, etc. While there have been hits and misses, that’s not stopping eateries across the country from creating new prata flavours for the adventurous Singapore foodie.
The latest “hipster” prata, however, isn’t a new prata flavour – instead, it’s a prata that looks different altogether.
Introducing “Rainbow Prata”, colourful pratas that come in hues you don’t typically see on prata.
Somewhere Over The Rainbow
The Rainbow Pratas are sold at Banana Leaf Pork Briyani, a newly opened food stall at Wave 9 in Woodlands. Unlike many Indian food stalls which are halal, this stall is not halal as the stall owner is a non-Muslim.
The pratas here are made from their own unique recipe, and currently come in green, blue and pink. Dyed using food colouring, keep a look out for new shades as Banana Leaf Pork Briyani is exploring expanding the colour range of its pratas.
Currently, only the prata kosong and egg prata come in these bright rainbow hues. That said, they may sell coloured versions of other prata flavours soon, so keep your eye out for them!
The rainbow plain pratas are priced at $1.50 each, and the rainbow egg pratas are going at $2 each, and they come served with your choice of chicken or pork curry.
So far, customers are already asking for new colours and flavours, so hopefully, it’ll be a ‘ask and you shall receive’ type of situation. If there’s something you have in mind, put in a request and who knows? You may see it on the menu in the near future!
Not In The Mood For Prata?
If you’re not in the mood for prata, opt for their Pork Briyani ($8) or Black Chicken Briyani ($8), the signature dishes at this stall.
Alternatively, you can’t go wrong with the usual Chicken Briyani ($7) and Fried Chicken Briyani ($7).
Unfortunately for many of us, this hawker stall is located all the way at Woodlands. If you’re living in the North of Singapore and are ever craving some prata, hit up Banana Leaf Pork Briyani! And for best effect, make sure you get a couple of these pratas at a go – the more the colours, the merrier!
