Roti Recipe

Roti is a delicious flaky wheat flour pan-fried bread with Muslim origins which is popular throughout Asia. In Thailand roti is most often served as a snack topped with sweetened condensed milk, white sugar and banana or even chocolate. In the South it is also served alongside curry, especially for breakfast.

See our Roti Recipe with step-by-step photos and our Thai Roti Vendor Video and more details about this recipe on our site.
