    KitchenManiac's Note:

    This bun is also known as the Mexican bun. The rotiboy consists of three parts: the filling, topping, and sweet dough. The filling and topping can be prepared beforehand and kept in the refrigerator until ready for use. The ingredients and instructions for preparing each of the three parts are given as follows. Pls don't be put off by all the steps, i have just been very detailed. The aroma that is going to fill your home is WONDERFUL, but it's nothing compared to trying this fresh out of your oven.

      Apart from the topping this is exactly like the rotiboy I got in Java and Bali (no topping seems the norm in Indonesia). Delicious!!!
