Recipe - Roti Canai 

Yields:  6pcs


300g plain flour
1 1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 tbsp sugar (add more if you prefer sweeter)
30g egg (less than 1 egg)
60g milk
80g water
2 tbsp vegetable oil or butter (room temperature)

Extra oil for shaping

  1. Put all ingredients in a bowl of stand mixer.  Using the dough hook, knead for about 4 - 5 minutes until the dough comes together.  
  2. Let the dough rest for 15 minutes in the same bowl.  Cover with cling film or kitchen towel.
  3. Divide the dough into 6 equal potions. Shape each dough into a ball. Coat each ball with oil and leave them inside a container with a lot of vegetable oil.  Cover and leave the dough rest overnight  in a cold place. The best inside the air-cond room.  
  4. Lightly oil the counter top.  Take out one dough and  flatten the dough with your palms.  Gently pull to stretch as thin as possible. Spread some oil or butter on it.  Take one of the edges and fold it to the middle. Do the the same to the opposite side and repeat the remaining two sides to form a square.
  5. Heat up a flat pan over low medium heat and brush with little oil.  Fry the roti canai until crisp and golden brown on both sides.
  6. Remove from the pan and transfer to counter top. To get a fluffy roti canai, give few claps on it with your both hands. 
  7. Serve it with your curry. Enjoy.
