Food Safety by CHIA JOO SUAN

If you like pancake or croissant, it is likely that you will also like roti canai. Visitors to Malaysia are often introduced to the roti canai which is touted to be the “Malaysian pancake”. 

The word “roti” means “bread” in Malay and Hindi, but the meaning of canai is somewhat uncertain. This humble version of unleavened bread, sometimes called roti pratta, is commonly served in Indian or Indian Muslim restaurants.
