Simple and quick Roti Canai recipe
Steps on how to make:
- Dilute salt and sugar in water. Mix flour and salt+sugar mixture evenly until it forms a dough. Knead the dough until smooth.
- Divide dough into 6 small balls. Coat each dough with oil to make sure the texture of the dough is not too sticky and gooey. Put them in a container that has been oiled. Cover the container tightly. (best to let the dough rest overnight)
- Flatten the dough with the palm’s heel until the size of a dinner plate. Then, flip it several times until it expands. Lift the left side of the expanded dough and fold to the right covering 2/3 of the whole surface. Do the same with the right until it forms a square.
- Place it on a heated pan or skillet that has been oiled at medium heat. Once it is lightly browns or is crispy on both sides, remove from pan and give it a light ‘clap’.
