When I lived in Malaysia I got totally addicted to Roti, plain ones, Roti Telur (egg), Roti Pisang (banana) and this Roti Nangka (jackfruit). I eat them almost every day where I pair the savoury ones with Fried Chicken or just a simple sambal and for the sweet ones I have them for desserts.

  • 1/2 cup ghee
  • 1/2 cup water
  • salt

Jackfruit Filling

  2. Add 1/4 cup of ghee then mix it gradually while adding water until it forms into a ball.
  3. Start kneading the dough in a greased surface for 8 minutes.
  4. Place dough back in the bowl then let it rest for 2 hours.
  5. In a greased surface, get a small ball from the dough then using a rolling pin flatten the dough as much as you can. Gently stretch the dough outwards the centre while resting the hand on the middle when its partly see through brush a bit of ghee on top then bring ends to the centre. Repeat the process this process again once more. Finally flatten it again with a rolling pin until it forms a circle.
