It’s late at night but you are hungry and struggling to get through your piling stack of work. You are thinking of the perfect Singaporean supper: golden buttery crisps soaked in heavenly fragrant curry, and a cup of iced teh cino to complete the picture. It may not be the healthiest snack out there, but prata might just be a panacea to your long and hectic week at work or school. So here it is. We have put together 10 Indian restaurants and eateries to get your favourite biryani, mutton soup, mutabak, and prata fix.
