We had a direct view of the KLCC Petronas Twin Towers
Kristang or Portugese-Malaccan cuisine is also featured in the Indian Kitchen. One of the most famous Kristang dishes is Curry Debal or Devil chicken curry, which we tried. Be warned that this curry is on the spicier side due to the use of fiery hot dried chillies.
A little bit of everything :)

4-5 shallots, finely chopped
3. Heat 2 tbsp of olive oil and the butter in the same pan on a medium heat, then add the shallots and garlic and fry for 2-3 minutes until browned.
4. Add the carnaroli rice and stir the rice well, making sure that the grains are coated with the olive oil/butter until slightly translucent. This process is called tostatura. It helps the rice absorb the stock later.
6. Allow the stock to be absorbed before adding more stock to the rice. Keep adding small amounts of stock to the rice until the rice is soft but still has a bite to it (al dente). The pack actually suggests cooking time of 20 minutes but for us to get to the al dente stage took about 30 minutes. Taste the risotto rice occasionally to check if it's ready. If you run out of stock before your rice is ready, you can add boiling water as a substitute for the stock.
7. When the rice is ready, add the cooked mushroom and Parmesan. Stir to mix the Parmesan well into the rice (the mantecatura process). Season with salt and remove from heat. Add the freshly chopped parsley and serve immediately.
*Since then I have managed to find arborio and carnaroli for sale at Village Grocer, Bangsar Village. Will definitely be cooking this again soon!
