Light Breakfast

Large arrow left

A typical light breakfast to be found in the local stalls is roti canai (pronounced "cha-nai"). Of Indian origin, roti means bread, and the dough is kneaded, stretched, flipped, and folded in lots of oil and ghee. Yes, it's not for the calorie-conscious!

The dough is cooked on a flat iron skillet or griddle, and is served with curry or dhal (cooked lentils). I personally prefer dhal with some chilli paste. To complete the meal you have to wash it down with a milk tea concoction called teh tarik (a highlight in and of itself).
