Roti Canai

One of the breakfasts that I like having here is Roti Canai. The c is normally pronounced ch here, so it sounds like Roti chanai. It’s basically a fried type of doughy flatbread. We went to market again today to get meat fish and veggies, and had breakfast there. The guy is sort of like a pizza maker. He takes a blob of oily dough, and mushes it, and flips it, stretches it, folds it, the fries it. I tried to do it once at home and didn’t get very close. The roti is normally served with a curry, but sometimes with egg, or butter, or kaya. 

Here are some media to explain.
