Great Prata!

Located at a coffee shop beneath a HDB block at Sin Ming estate (near LTA HQ), is this stall tucked away in a corner.

I discovered  that they have a special dish and I came for it when I was out for breakfast last week.

The item I was looking for was 'Coin Prata'. Essentially, this was prata about the size of your palm. You get a set of 5 pratas for $3.50. I observed how it was made. 

The cook flip the dough to a big circle and cut it up into 3 strips. He then hold up each strip and makes a 'lollipop' with the dough. This then goes onto the griddle and fried.

You have a choice of chicken of mutton curry. I asked for the mutton curry and it was spicy and nice. 

There are other ala carte items such as fried chicken and squid, which I wil try the next time.

A must try for prata and curry lovers alike!

The plain roti prata is pure art. It has a slight crispy exterior while the inside is chewy and filled with sinful buttery fragrance. Personally i prefer my prata with eggs but this is the one stall i will order my plain pratas diligently. Its not to say the egg pratas are bad, they are nice in their own way, but not as impressive as the plain ones as the addition of eggs took away its flake, crispy texture. The curry is where i lost it. I swear i've never tasted any thing that's ever come close, it is thick, aromatic and savory, infused with spices that i'll have trouble pronouncing and it a little more to the spicy side; not spicy enough to torch your tongue but enough for you to break a sweat. If you are a curry lover this will definitely satisfy you, for me this is the benchmark and it is hard to see anyone topping it anytime soon.

Sin Ming Roti Prata - Perhaps the best in Singapore

We had tried many of the “Famous” roti prata around Singapore, from the Jalan Kayu to the Tampines and few others that used to be the talk of the town. However, most of the standard and quality have since been deteriorating so much that we are redundant to put it down as part of our review. We are vexed that the new generation or new business taking over seems not able to appreciate the art of the food, and allowing the centuries of glory built up ruined in the hand of the slothful generations. Will there be more poignant stories, we hope not. So far, we are so glad that Sin Ming Roti Prata unwaveringly preserves the dignity of the brand by maintaining the excellent standard throughout the years. We truly kowtow to the stall. Be it the regular prata or the coin prata, the dough are the same, though there is a wide range of add on options available to perk up your taste buds, we adamantly steadfast to the plain and egg version as it gives the most original taste and flavour of the good prata without masked by other flavours. We are truly impressed by the flavourful and fantastic texture of the prata, the prata are fluffy, chewy with crisp on the exterior and the taste were simply additive that you can eat on its own without dipping into the curry sauce. We love the fragrance of the buttery sweet taste from the dough and frankly, we can’t find any other roti prata able to whip up the same standard as Sin Ming Roti Prata so far. The standard roti prata from Sin Ming Roti Prata usually comes with either the fish or chicken curry, all the gravy are thick and savory, there is only a word to describe the curry “d*** Shiok”.  We ordered the extra mutton curry so not to miss the dish. The mutton was tender and cooked to the perfection, eating with the prata made our brunch a wonderful meal for the weekend.

Comfort food for the soul

You could have the coin prata at six pieces for $3.50, though the regular prata is equally good, and not just for our story's cheaper constraints. The dough used is the same. For the regular prata, the sweet-salty-buttery dough is fluffier inside, but equally chewy, and crisp on the outside.
