Full set Murtabak ready to ngap!
Thot of showing the inside, but a bit blur..
Rempah Kurma
Hi!! I'm back to my old self again and hope it'll stay that way for the rest of the week at least! Lots of things to be done!

Just had my first ever Selfmade Murtabak! It's so nice I tell you...huhuhu... giving credit to my own cooking huh...sooooo embarassing ! But at least I am honest! Anyway here's the list of people I need to give my thanks to , for making my first Murtabak attempt such a pleasant success...
    1. Mr Niceghost from Forum.Cari.Com.My for the best and simplest version of roti canai. Well, that's the first thing you need to make a murtabak. And also his Onion Pickle (Jeruk bawang) recipe to go along with the murtabak.
    2. Puan Alia, my neighbour ~ for the nice murtabak filling recipe and method of doing murtabak.
    3. Puan NoorMasri for the lovely and simple dhal recipe. Manage to cook it just this morning before sending the kids to school.
    4. Cekya, for making me wish for murtabak!
    5. Last but not least, me, myself and I, for being the best tester and eater, no one can compete... HAHAHAHA!

The recipe for Mr Niceghost roti canai, I've pasted in my previous entry under the topic SIMPLY DELICIOUS ( This time, I will give the balance 3 recipes if you are interested to try especially for those staying abroad where murtabak can't be found in the restaurants!

ONION PICKLE (Jeruk Bawang)

Onion ~ sliced
A bit of sugar
A bit of salt
A bit of hot water
A drop of red coloring

Mix well the above and keep overnight.


Ingredients :

Minced meat
Shredded cabbage
Onion ~ diced
1 teaspoon kurma powder
1 teaspoon sup powder
salt to taste
cooking oil

Method :

1. Heat oil and put in the diced onion. Cook till fragrant.
2. Add the minced meat.
3. Add in both powders and salt. Stir well.
4. Put in the shredded cabage.
5. When cooked, remove from fire and let cool

Note :
Besides shredded cabage, you can also add in boiled diced carrots and green peas


100g yellow dhal ~ soak overnight
1 tablespoon fish curry powder
1/2 teaspoon tumeric powder
125ml thin coconut milk (from 1/2 coconut)
2 green chillies ~ cut to 4 pieces
salt to taste

To be diced :

300g pumpkin
1 potato
1 carrot
1 brinjal
1 tomato

5 shallots ~ slice thinly
a few curry leaves
60ml cooking oil

Method :

1. Boil yellow dhal till soft with water.
2. Add in curry powder, tumeric powder, potato, pumpkin and carrot. Boil till half soft.
3. Add in brinjal, tomato, coconut milk and salt. Stir to mix and leave to thicken.
4. Heat oil in a small pan. Put in the sliced shallots, green chillies and curry leaves. When brown in colour, pour the whole thing into the dhal curry.
5. Cover the pot for 5 minutes before serving.


Since I am a short cut kind of a person, I just do whatever is easy for me. In this case, I didn't use coconut milk, but fresh milk. And I only put in diced beans, potatos and tomatos. I didn't put curry leaves because I don't have any in the house. And instead of fish curry, I just used meat curry powder.

Opps got to get back to work or else I'll get fired! Or will I?????
