Roti Canai


  • 1-1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup ghee (clarified butter)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • salt to taste


  1. Sift the flour and salt into a medium bowl.
  2. Now add 1/4 cup of ghee into a hole made in the dough.
  3. Mix well and gradually add enough water to bind the dough.
  4. Next knead the dough on a greased counter top for 5-8 minutes.
  5. Place it back in the bowl and let it rest for at least 2 hours. This helps the dough to stretch well.
  6. Take a small ball from the dough and roll it out thoroughly on a greased counter top.
  7. Gently pull at the corners of the dough until its thin enough that you can see through it.
  8. Now fold one end of the dough by bringing the top end to the middle.  Repeat with the bottom end.
  9. Bring the right end and then the left and then slowly stretch the dough a bit on all the ends.
  10. In a greased skillet, cook 1-2 minutes until browned.
  11. Turn and then repeat.
