Roti Canai, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Durian pancakes weren't the only food discovery that I made in Kuala Lumpur last weekend.
I also found the slightly less smelly and more addictive Indian-style bread, Roti Canai....

Roti Canai (known as Roti Prata in Singapore) is a light bread that is sold everywhere in Kuala Lumpur.
It is a thin flatbread with a pancake-like texture that is always made fresh and served warm with a spicy curry sauce to dip it in - no butter here!

Kuala Lumpur seems to have developed a real love for bread - I even found a stall selling some real thick West Country loafs!

What's great about Roti Canai is that it can be eaten any time of day - on its own or as a side dish alongside a curry.
Many locals eat it for breakfast, while we would have it as a mid-afternoon snack.
