Roti prata is a fried flour-based pancake that is cooked over a flat grill. It is usually served with a vegetable or meat based curry and is from Malaysia and Singapore. Prata is also commonly cooked (upon request) with cheese, onion, banana, red bean, chocolate, mushroom or egg. It is listed at number 45 on World's 50 most delicious foods readers' poll compiled by CNN Go in 2011.
Roti prata is prepared by flipping the dough into a large thin layer before folding the outside edges inwards. The dough is cooked on a flat round iron pan measuring about 3 feet in diameter. Other ingredients such as cooked mutton, onion and egg (and more recently cheese) if desired, are added into the dough during the cooking process which lasts about 2 - 3 minutes. Prata is commonly served with a fish or chicken based curry. Some people prefer to eat it with sugar.
