Easy Roti Canai

I have been using this same recipe for the last decade since we have moved here, because I can't really find a good roti place anywhere., so I tested several recipes and decided this works best for me. #homecookedroticanai

So those staying at home who are missing their fave roti from the local mamak place, do give this a try.


2 cups flour
3/4 cups warm milk or water
1 tbsp oil
1 tsp each salt and sugar
1/4 tsp baking powder

More oil for cooking and prepping.


Mix in all the dry ingredients. Add the oil. Mix well.
Add the liquid (milk or water).

Knead dough for 5 minutes or until the dough no longer sticks to the bowl. Add enough oil to cover the dough and leave for 20 minutes. (cover with film or damp towel)

divide dough to 4-5 balls, flatten with rolling pin until the dough is almost transparent, add eggs and onions for roti telor/bawang variations, cook on a flat pan on medium heat. Enjoy with left over curry from last night :)

Happy trying!
