Roti Canai

Roti canai(pronounced chanai,not kanai).How to make one???huhu..

Ingridients :

  • 10 oz plain flour
  • Salt to taste
  • ½ cup ghee (clarified butter)
  • ½ cup water

To prepare :

  • Sieve flour and salt into a mixing bowl

  • Mix in the ghee, add water gradually, knead until the dough is a smooth, medium consistency

  • Let dough rest for 2 to 3 hrs to soften

  • Take a portion of dough, shape into a ball, oil the work top with ghee and work each ball into a very thin sheet - first flatten with your oiled palms, then thin it further by pulling the edges [professionals do it by flipping the dough in the air in a circular motion like a pizza maker does]

  • Sprinkle the dough sheet with 1 tsp of ghee and fold in edges forming it into a square then sprinkle a little flour and roll out slightly

  • Alternatively, you can thin out the sheet, oil and roll it up - coil it up like a sea shell, flatten, oil again and repeat the flattening 1 or 2 more times

  • Preheat griddle or pan, grease well with ghee; when hot, put one roti dough on, cook for 2-3 mins till golden brown. Lift Roti with a spatula, grease the griddle with a tsp of ghee, cook the other side

  • Serve hot with Malaysian Chicken Curry or your favorite curry! (too lazy to cook curry,sugar will do..)
