There is a newly opened mini market in the condos we live in. Checked it out while on the way back from a morning walk in park the other day. I am the kind of person that will feel shy if walking out of a shop (small shop) without buying anything. Thus, I walked out with a pack of dhal and some spices not knowing what to cook at that moment.
After blog-hopping, I found Sonia's dhal curry and cooked my first dhal dish with her recipe. Just nice that there were two pieces of instant roti canai in the freezer, we had that for breakfast the next day. Roti canai is now available in many flavours, but I still prefer the original roti with dhal curry.
To me, the combination of roti canai and dahl curry is a special breakfast associates with childhood memories. When my younger brother and I were attending primary school we sometimes had breakfast with my dad at coffee shop (kopitiam) before going to school. Dad brought us to the shop with his motorcycle then we had roti canai with egg (brought from home) and a cup of coffee. Breakfast time like that might be a routine for many people, but to me it was definitely a special treat. It was luxury for us to have breakfast outside, and I really enjoyed the moment. Dad... I miss you!
For roti canai, I prefer to eat with hand. What about you?
