Malaysian Food Appreciation: Murtabak

Murtabak or martabak is an Indian Muslim dish found in Yemen, Indonesia, Singapore, Brunei and Yemen where it is called Motabbag, Arbic term which means “the folded”. It is a wrapped roti canai (roti cane) filled with minced meat, curry with eggs and onion. It is fried on a griddle until it becomes golden brown (nationmaster.com). Its perfect dip for me is the sour-sweet vinegar with lots of onion slices.
