Penang Food: The Mamak Breakfast

A very common breakfast meal ordered by the locals here at Mamak stalls is the ‘Roti Canai’. Roti Canai is a type of Indian-influenced flatbread found and is said to be originated in Malaysia. The word Roti means bread and Roti Canai is usually prepared by twirling the dough to be a very thin sheet and then folding it into a circular shape which is then grilled with oil. Often accompanied with curry gravy, this is still a cheaper and yet satisfying breakfast option for most people here.

The Roti Canai is also often ordered together with a glass of ‘teh tarik’ or literally “pulled tea”, a hot Indian milk tea beverage as shown above.
