Paper Thosai

Paper Torsai

Most commonly known in Malaysia as the Paper Thosai, this Malaysian version of pancake is made from rice batter and black lentils. It is a common breakfast dish usually eaten with some form of curry.For my family, it is a weekend tradition to go to our favorite “mamak” stall (Malaysian version of coffee stores) for “roti” (Malay for Indian bread), which includes the Paper Thosai. Yes, we eat curry in the morning!

It is a common thing among Malaysian families to have “roti” in the morning. For one, it’s because it is absolutely delicious but also because it is affordable to eat out. On average a Paper Thosai costs about 70 cents!

Makan “roti” pada waktu pagi adalah satu perkara yang biasa dalam kalangan keluarga di Malaysia. Kerana roti sunguh lazat tetapi juga kerana ia sangat murah. Satu Paper Thosai kos kira-kira 70cents!
