Instant Home Made Roti Prata.

There is a general misconception that Roti Prata is a dish from India. In actual fact, the Roti Prata is a Singaporean creation that had evolved from the Indian Paratha, which is made out of ghee, egg, flour and water. Roti means “bread” and Prata means “flat” in Hindi. I first knew this from the exchange students from India.

I was on a Roti Prata craze ever since I got back from New York City on Christmas Eve last year. And the craving didn’t go away till about 3 weeks after that. I kept having instant Roti Prata instead of those I could buy at food stalls outside. Whenever I wanted one, I could just pop it out of the freezer and onto a hot pan. Fry it with butter or any other ingredients I want, and viola it is ready to be eaten.

This is how it looks like when you buy it from the supermarket. This Roti Prata is from Chinatown Food. There are many additional brands to choose from.

Here are some photos I took of a “Love Asia” Christmas party we had in 2007, which included Roti Prata.

Here is one Roti Prata sizzling on a pan. Add butter to this and it becomes tastier.

A pot of curry to accompany the Roti Prata, for dipping purposes.

However, I was more in the mood for dipping my Roti Prata in caster sugar.

This instant dish is so versatile. If you like, you could add cheese, egg, chicken, beef, mutton to it…the list goes on. Roti Prata goes so well with Teh Tarik, a delicious type of tea. Sigh, the simple pleasures in life.

    I agree that it is definitely nicer than the famous prata in J*lan K***. Besides, it is also cheaperrr! The price of the cheese prata there is equivalent to one bowl of fish ball noodle. This instant prata is goooood!!!
