The Best Authentic Roti Canai Recipe from Laut NYC


An authentic Malaysian, Singaporean, Thai and even New York Recipe from the wonderful duo at Laut NYC




1lb all purpose flour

1 tsp sugar

1 cup oil

pinch of salt

3 sp Condensed milk


water level usually varies as all flours are different but the consistency of the dough should be the same as playdoh


Butter to cover the the dough


mix and sift the dry ingredients first


add oil  /clarified butter knead and gradually add in the water (the dough should be soft and not sticky)


knead for 15 mins and let the dough rest for 30 min covered w. a damp cloth


knead the dough again and form round pieces about 100-150 gm each and rub with butter / ghee and let it rest again for an hour, this to allow the gluten to form so we can achieve the elasticity and it can stretch.


later flip the roti and cook in ghee on a flat top.
