Roti Canai Home Made Recipe

ROTI CANAI RECIPE: Roti canai or paratha is a very commonly found staples food in Malaysia. Many Mamak (Indian Muslim) and Malay shops whether in a restaurant or by the roadside do serve up this popular dish throughout the day. The Roti Canai is best to be eaten with Dhall Curry and Sambal but some prefer it to be eaten with Fish Curry or Chicken Curry.

You can view our Step By Step Roti Canai Making Video Review on Youtube.
