Andhra Curry, Kerbau Road
A former colleague of mine from India had referred me to this place (41 Kerbau Road, 6293-3935), on the basis that they had a great dhal. I couldn't quite find it explicitly stated on the surprisingly brief menu tonight, but I figured that it would be included in the kalyana bhojana, a vegetarian thali whose many samples were much more distinctive than I would have thought, including an extremely sour soup (in a good way). The dhal - assuming that this was the same one that my colleague referred me to - was nothing like Bukhara's rich ghee-infused one, but it was tangy and spicy, so much that I could still feel the heat in my stomach as we went home.
We also grabbed their biryani, which was fine, although I still found Mirchi's and Heritage's to be more edgy and exciting. One other surprising thing was a rather significant number of tourists here; only did I realize afterwards that this place was listed in the Lonely Planet guide. Anyway, that thali was indeed memorable enough for me to come back for, although admittedly there are still so many other restaurants in Little India to try that it may be some time before that happens.
