Roti Canai Mr. Niceghost99
Nice sayings
Today, in the morning, i made, for the second time, Mr. Niceghost99's (from forum roti canai. I made 1/2 the recipe (manage to get only 5) yesterday but it wasn't enough and pity my son, he didn't get the chance to enjoy it. I made the dough yesterday nite and started 'spreading' it this morning. So far, this is the simplest and the most delicious roti canai i've ever made! And for the benefit of those who do not understand the Bahasa Malaysia, i will write down the recipe in English. Please excuse me if there's any grammatical mistakes as my English is not so good.

ROTI CANAI (Mr. Niceghost99 from forum

3 cups flour
1 - 1.5 cups water
1 tablespoon margarine
salt to taste
2 tablespoons condensed milk
1 tablespoon cooking oil
Extra margarine

Method :

1. Mix well water, salt and condensed milk
2. Add the liquid into the flour bit by bit if kneading manually
pour the whole amount into the flour if using machine
3. Add in cooking oil
4. Add in margarine
5. Knead to form a soft dough. Leave it covered with a damp cloth for about 30 minutes.
6. Divide the dough into 10 portion and mould into balls.
7. Coat the balls with margarine so that they won't stick to each other. Leave to rest for not less than 2 hours.
8. Spread (tebar as we say it in Malay) each ball on a smooth surface to form a very thin layer. Fold the four sides into the middle and fry.
9. Enjoy.


My answer to...
googoo>>Thanks for visiting my page. So far, I've used bread flour, cake flour and all-purpose flour to make this roti canai and they are just fine
louise>> Hi Louise...thanks for dropping by and also for trying this recipe. This version of roti canai is a bit thin, I must admit. So when frying, be careful not to 'over-fry' it. Since you've tried this one, why not give my other version a try. So far, I've received good comments on that one. The recipe is here
cikda>> Kalau cikda ada kat Malaysia, senanglah, boleh beli kat kedai je, tapi kalau di luar Malaysia, kenalah buat sendiri ye...
Ly>> Thanks Ly...
infertity>> Terima kasih...
Wanessa>> It should be just pan fried. If you're using a non stick pan, then less oil is needed. All the best and sorry for the belated reply. Wasn't keeping well lately...
aleen>> Waalaikumussalam Aleen. Itulah salah satu kebaikan merantau. Kita 'terpaksa' mencuba sendiri apa yang tak pernah terlintas di fikiran kita untuk mencuba, especially when it comes to recipes. Yelah, kalau kita craving nak makan makanan Malaysia, nak tak nak, jadi tak jadi, kenalah cuba sendiri, betul tak? Trust me, I started baking bila dah di perantauan and I started from nothing sampailah sekarang ni, bolehlah dikatakan....boleh survive...hehehe...
zuliemir>> Welcome to our world of tukang masak... ahaks... selamat mencuba segala resepi yang terberkenan ye...
Linda, Savannah>> You mean to say that you've used berkilo kilo tepung on this recipe ke and none turned out well? Alahai sorrylah. Then try some other recipes pulaklah... don't waste your flour. Why not try this version pulak. Maaf ye....
Nurhanina>> Waalaikumussalam Nurhanina. Terima kasihlah kerana menjadikan fp mama dan Kak Liza sebagai panduan. I've stayed abroad for so many years and I know how it feels like when you crave for something but it's not available in the shops. You have to prepare it yourself to enjoy them. So no worries dear, insyaAllah selagi dipinjamkan nyawa dan kudrat, mama akan terus berkongsi apa yang telah mama cuba. Moga memberi manafaat kepada semua... wallahualam...
Nurhanina>> Thanks dear...
