Field observations at Mamak, Haymarket.
When I tried making roti at home I was just going off the recipe. I'd never actually eaten one before. Can you believe it? And the recipe was not a great help -- "add water until you get roti dough consistency." Yeh, thanks.
I then tried roti at Chennai. They were so different from the rigid chewy mess I'd made. I had to find out the secret.
So I went to Mamak, Molly. I was told that I'd have to line up to get a table. But while I was waiting I'd get to watch them make rotis in the window. Too good to be true? Not so.
Now I have the technique. All I need is a good recipe. And lots of practise.
