This is how much I miss the mamak stalls back home.
I have such intense cravings for roti canai that I went out to the supermarket and got myself some pre-made frozen roti.
The best part is: it comes with curry. Fish curry. My favorite. But that tiny little packet will never suffice.
So I went around looking for the most instant form of curry available for purchase and I found this! All I need to do is just add water, milk (I used soy) and vegetables!! Sweet! I added some eggplants, okras, tomatoes and potatoes. I didn’t put in any meat though, as I was on a vegetarian diet that day.
While the curry was simmering away, I fired up a pan, melted some butter onto it and pan fried each side of the roti until it’s golden brown. The last and very important step in making the authentic roti is to puff it up to make it flaky and nice! Well, I attempted to puff it up the mamak way but I ended up creating such a mess, with crumbs and flakes all over the place!
