Roti Canai

I'm a Malaysian Chinese. Malaysia is a multi racial country consisting of Malays, Chinese, Indians and numerous indigenous people. Today I want to talk about one of my favorite Indian food, roti canai (roti = bread).

Roti canai is a type of Indian-influenced flat bread. It's sometimes referred to as "flying bread", a term that evokes the process of tossing and spinning by which it is made.

Traditionally roti canai is served with any type of curry, such as mutton or chicken curry. However, the versatility of roti canai as the staple lends itself to many variations, with a variety of toppings and fillings, which includes eggs, banana, sardines and onion. 

This is how they make roti canai,
 no wonder they call it "flying bread"...
