Roti Canai Cheese

Roti canai is one of the famous/popular food in Malaysia. At first, I thought it is very difficult to make, until I saw this video .
My family love this roti canai with cheese filling....

Here's the recipe from Poh's Kitchen 

500 gm flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
2 tbsp condensed milk
2 tbsp margarine/butter
1/2 egg ( slightly beaten)
1 cup water ( adjustable)

For cheese filling:
cheddar cheese
some sugar


Combine flour, salt and sugar in a large mixing bowl.
Add in  water, condensed milk, margarine and egg. 
Knead the dough until smooth and elastic. 
Divide the dough into 80 gm each.
Smooth them and coated them with margarine.
Place them into a bowl, cover with cling film and leave it at room temperature overnight.
Gently press the dough with palm, stretching the dough slightly.
Hold and stretch to expand the dough, and shall get a thin sheet of dough.
Spread some margarine /butter and sprinkle some sugar and cheese on top, then fold it up.
Fold or coil it up into a lump.
Fry on both sides over medium heat until golden brown.
Can eat it on its own or serve with chicken curry or dhal curry.

Pull and stretch the dough into a thin sheet...
