Singapore Food Classics – Roti Prata

Aaahh Roti Prata.
Definitely one of Singapore’s beloved comfort food.

This pillar dish of most, if not all, indian stalls across the city-state, the roti is a fried flour-based pancake that is cooked over a flat grill. Watching a cook preparing a Pratha is an interesting sights, as it requires speed and skill, a-la-pizzaiolo flipping, twisting, and tapping on the grill (see video below)

Its layered and soft texture that is very pleasurable on the palate, it becomes divine when dipped in the accompanying vegetable or meat based curry.

Prata can be enhanced with different toppings such as cheese, onion, banana, red bean, chocolate, mushroom or egg… It might not be the healthiest dish around, but it is one that surely will fill you properly and leave a smile on your face…
