VIDEO: Roti Canai – Eating Malaysian Breakfast

Thank you for watching!

(You can also watch this roti canai video on YouTube)

In this episode of Migrationology Food TV, I’m in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, for a typical on-the-go Malaysian food breakfast known locally as a roti canai.

With south Indian influence, this type of roti is very similar to a paratha bread, basically a ball of dough that’s slapped until thin, folded over and cooked until golden crispy. Served with a side of dipping curry sauce, it’s wonderful!

I also had a few cups of teh tarik, the local style of milk tea.

Do you love food and travel too?

If so, I'd love to give you my FREE street food guide, "41 Irresistible Meals You'll Travel to Eat," plus you'll receive exclusive street food updates (it's free)!

    That chai or teh tarik looks like the perfect drink for washing down the south Indian influenced breakfast. If I get to KL, I’ll probably spend the majority of my time savoring the delicious and affordable street food.

    I just had dinner and now I feel like eating this breakfast!! Looks really good!

    I can’t believe I am in Lisbon right now, where a paratha costs 2Euros (!!!) in the only place I know that serves them in town!..

    one of my favorite breakfasts. I love Malaysia – had a great trip from Singapore to Malacca, to KL, Ipoh and Penang. GREAT food.
