    Wendys Kitchen's Note:

    A famous Malaysian delicacy known as roti canai. It's transformed to include several delicious, but optional fillings from bananas, butter, eggs, to other more exotic tastes. Roti canai is usually served with several Indian curries; dhall (lentils) or sambar (mixed vegetable). Some people also have it with fish or chicken.

      You might not need all the flour. It's about a little more than 2 cups of flour to one cup of water. Adding 3/4 tablespoon of fine white sugar rounds out the taste, which is nice.
