Pak Putra Restoran, Best Tandoori and Naan in Melaka

The night still early after we had our Asam Pedas at Hajjah Mona’s. We moved on to Pak Putra’s Restoran which famous for their Tandoori Chicken and fluffy Nan bread. Most of the staff are from the punjabi race from their slang. The restaurant is located down the road from Hajjah Mona’s restaurant which about 300 meters away.


The chicken is marinated in yogurt and seasoned with tandoori masala. It is moderately hot, but the heat is reduced in most Western nations.


Cayenne pepper, red chili powder or kashmiri red chilli powder is used to give it a fiery red hue. A higher amount of Turmeric produces an orange colour. In some modern versions, both red and yellow food colourings are used.

It is traditionally cooked at high temperatures in a tandoor (clay oven), but can also be prepared on a traditional grill.

Garlic Cheese Naan Bread

The naan were great! Fluffy, soft and the garlic really spice up the bread. I just can eat it like that. This place is so famous that their tandoori chicken sold out at 10pm during weekends. If they run out of tandoori chicken, you can try the rest of their dishes too which taste as good.
