Fried Roti Telur

My first attempt on a recipe from Flavours! When I saw this recipe many months ago, (last year, in fact) I know I must try it out even though the description stated there “is a cholesterol bomb”. It’s very easy to prepare but do take note that since roti is already precooked with oil/ghee, I would suggest that you go easy on the oil when frying it the second time (you wouldn’t want your roti to be soaked in oil!).


I tweaked the recipe a bit since I was running out of ingredients:

  • 2 pieces roti telur, shredded
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 medium onion, cut according to your preference
  • thick chicken curry gravy and chicken meat (shredded) that comes with the roti
  • a little salt to taste
  1. Heat oil in wok and sauté garlic and onion till fragrant.
  2. Add the roti telur, mix well. Add in the chicken meat and curry gravy little by little and mix well till the roti are evenly coated.
  3. Season with salt and serve immediately.

And here’s the Flavours version:

  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 onion, sliced
  • 2 bird’s eye chillies (cili padi), chopped (optional)
  • 2 sprigs curry leaves
  • 2 pieces roti canai, shredded
  • 2 pieces curry chicken meat, shredded
  • 3 tablespoons thick chicken curry gravy
  • salt to taste
  1. Heat the oil in wok over medium heat. Sauté chopped garlic and onion till fragrant.
  2. Add the chillies and curry leaves and fry until aromatic. Add the roti and meat, using the wok stirrer (if you’re using the metal stirrer) to “chop” up the mixture.
  3. Add curry and “chop” some more, working the curry into the roti. Fry until dry and aromatic, seasoning to taste.

Alternatively, if you’re using plain roti canai, you can add eggs while you’re frying the onion and garlic before you add in the roti.


Bon appetite, everyone!

  1. WMW,
    Julie? Julia? Hehe.

    Yeah, I used to have roti canai with sunny side up during secondary school in school canteen. Flood it with curry and dhal, such comfort food.
