Roti canai

One of Malaysia favourite breakfast is a sort of pancake, made from dough of flour, condensed milk, and egg. The soft malleable dough is 'thinned' by thrown it about in the air (a special skill is needed here) and folded and cooked over a hot plate, lubricated with oil, cooked untill almost crisped. And mostly eaten with curry, or any gravy that you wish to have it with, or even with sugar (in some parts of Malaysia). You normally have the pancake with 'teh tarik' (tea sweetened with condensed milk and sugar, thrown about in the air from one cup to another, the mixture not spooned stired. Here again a special skill is needed to make the concoction).
