    Malaysian`Chef's Note:

    This is the authentic recipe used by the Mamak (Indians) in Malaysia. The recipes that have margarine or eggs and milk are not the ones they use in those Indian food stalls. Incredibly easy. must try!

      Yup, that's the real thing! It's amazing how much oil goes into it. Some Malay coffeeshops put in margarine and egg. I'd suggest reducing the salt to 2/3 tablespoon and adding 2/3 tablespoon of white sugar - to be dissolved in the water.

      This was much easier than I thought! I watched the You Tube video, and I tried to scrunch mine up the way he does after it's cooked, and it went really nice and flaky! Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring 2010.
