Hey guys, welcome to Nyonya Cooking. This video is a very special one because it is part of the playlist, Breakfast in Malaysia If you are interested to know what we Malaysians eat during breakfast Just check out the link in the description box below It should give you more information and also give you more recipes to the food that we have during breakfast Now, in this video, we are going to prepare something that is at the top of the list of most Malaysians This is how to prepare roti canai. This is a flat bread that is crispy and flaky I like to make this because it’s really one of the most favourite dishes of Malaysian cuisine when it comes to food So, some recipes you may find them using eggs or condensed milk. I like to keep mine simple and yet I still get this really flaky, soft and also crispy roti canai If you want to know what the ingredients are, let’s check it out You’ll first need a bit of flour, water, oil, some salt and also sugar That’s all, simple and easy to prepare. Now, let’s go into making the dough First of all, we are going to add the salt and sugar into the water It would be really helpful if the water is slightly warm to dilute the salt and sugar I would use gloves. Just going to create a well in the flour Once it’s mixed well, I’m going to pour half of this into the flour and then carefully mix it. All we want to create is this dough that is workable Knead the dough until it is smooth like this and then it’s time to divide it into portions of equal weight/size. Here I have a plate which had already been oiled earlier So, what we are going to do is try and separate this dough and just to ensure that this dough would not stick to each other. I’m just going to oil it first before putting it on the plate This is just plain vegetable oil. Now, some of the recipes would also use margarine If you like, you can also do that or even use butter but I do not really like this buttery smell or taste to my roti canai That’s why I’m just using plain oil Now, that’s the end to preparing the dough I’m going to show you how to flip the roti canai the next day We are going to keep this in the refrigerator with a cling wrap over it The oil we have in this plate is going to help the dough to rest and also to stop the dough from drying up So, tomorrow we are going to show you how to prepare this flaky, fluffy and crispy roti canai Stay tuned The dough had already rested in the fridge all night and now I just brought it out from the fridge So, to prepare roti canai, you need to have enough of working space. That’s number one Number two is that you will need to oil your working space to flip the roti canai Spread it as much as you can. With your right hand palm facing up and the left hand palm down Just flip it like this Then, move on to the other side and do the same again We are just going to fold it in. Holding the tip, I’m just going to create a circle Place a few drops of oil and let it rest for 3 to 5 minutes before you flatten it again Meanwhile, have the pan ready and heat it up Once this is done, place it onto the pan Keep flipping until it is slightly brown. That’s when the roti canai is ready We are going back to the work place. We are going to release the air in the roti canai and this would actually help to give this texture and also make it really fluffy All you need to do is just clap your hands You’ll really get these layers between the roti canai, as you can see. It’s really beautiful Lots of layers, really beautiful and I cannot resist. I’m so sorry. Delicious…Nothing beats freshly made roti canai You cannot, just cannot buy the frozen roti canai and substitute it with freshly made roti canai Making roti canai is really simple.
