If you've been to any of Thailand's street markets, chances are you've seen or tried their famous Thai roti or banana Nutella pancake
Nothing quite completes your holiday until you've had one of these sinful treats.
Malaysian cook Von Chin recently shared an easy version of the recipe and how you can make them at home similar to the ones in Thailand
These are the ingredients you need:
- 1 piece frozen roti paratha of your choice (the recipe uses the 'flakey' version)
- 1 banana
- 2 tablespoons Nutella
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 tablespoon condensed milk
This portion makes one serving. If you want to make more, just increase the ingredients accordingly.
Step one: Defrost the frozen roti paratha for five minutes. Then, flatten it on a clean work surface or a piece of baking parchment paper.
To flatten it, grab the edge (one section at a time) and stretch it out slightly without tearing it. Then, press the edge onto the work surface or parchment paper so it doesn't shrink.
Step two: Arrange about 12 slices of banana (or whatever filling you're using) in the centre of the dough in a square shape. Quickly fold the edges of the roti over the banana.
You can use condensed milk, Milo, peanut butter, Nutella, bananas, or any combination of the above as a filling.
Step three: Heat a 12-inch flat pan (or bigger) and add enough butter to coat the bottom
Take note that the more generous you are with the butter, the crispier the roti will be.
Step four: Once the bottom has browned slightly, sprinkle some sugar, flip, and brown the other side of the roti
Keep flipping it back and forth until both sides are well browned and crispy. The total cooking time should be about four to five minutes.
Step five: Transfer the roti onto a cutting board and cut it into 12 pieces. Spread a handful of Nutella or drizzle some condensed milk on it and you're done!
