Roti Canai. Kuala Lumpur.

Simple, soulful yet fufilling dish most Malaysian eat as snack, breakfast, lunch, dinner or even supper.

Made with flour, oil and butter, the dough will be toased and fly into the air few times to ensure it is fluffy and loose. This will bring crispness to the final product. It will then pan fried with a little bit of oil.

Roti canai is best served with dhal or curry. Children normally have it with sugar, which turns savory to sweetness.

There is a phrase “life without you is like having Roti Canai without Dhal”. It means the two go hand in hand and one can’t live without the other. And explains why you should have Roti Canai with dhal.

Roti Canai has been developed into many flavors now. There are Roti Planta (with margerine), Roti Telur (with egg), Roti Sardine, Roti Pisang (with banana) and many more.
