The delicious murtabak is a type of roti canai or Indian pancake wrapped with minced meat which has been shaped into patty and cooked. Therefore, the murtabak is more filling and thicker than the normal roti canai which usually don’t come with meat. Other differences are the roti canai is thin and crispy whereas the murtabak is think and not as crispy. The murtabak is usually cooked on a griddle and served with pickled onions and curry.
