This simply rolled out dough made of flour, sugar, margarine, eggs and condensed milk is certainly Malaysia’s favorite bread. It’s so versatile that can be enjoyed as a snack, as a meal or even as a dessert.

No-frills, basic and downright delicious on its own. But if you want to take it a notch higher, use the roti canai to scoop up the rich curry or top it with more condensed milk, some fruit chunks or ice cream.

With this kind of simple delicacy, the imagination just needs a little tapping to turn it into an excitingly delightful treat.
