A popular way of serving Indian food in Malaysia is on a banana leaf. This few ringit (about a quid) meal (a thali basically) starts with a banana leaf in front of you, on goes some white rice then dishes of various vegetable curries - beetroot, breen bean and cabbage amonst others in that photo - are scooped on to it, then usually a pot or three of daals is dumped on your table and you can pour as much as you like on the rice. You can add meat curries too, but you need to pay another 3 or 4 ringits for these maybe. Tasty food aside you're expected to eat with your fingers, stirring some rice and dal together and using them (don't let it touch your palm) to get it into your mouth. Messy, spicy, tasty fun.
They're served everywhere but some of the nicest I've had were in Brickfields, an area 10 minutes walk from KL Sentral, the main commuter hub in the city so very easy to get to. If you do make it up that way you have the honour of eating in the same restaurant that Malaysia's PM recently did - Restoran Sri Kortumalai. A marketing opportunity the owners weren't going to let pass them by.
