Roti Telur Versus Claire's French Toast

I had this roti canai telur for breakfast in an indian shop....
the roti telur was fabulous...
crispy on the outside and soft inside...
(roti telur - bread with egg)

When I told my girl that I had this for breakfast,
she also wanted to have that for dinner....

But I was so tired... so lazy to drive out to buy...
suddenly.... *ting!* idea came to my mind...

I told her,"Come, help me... lets make our own roti telur"
(egg with bread)

I whipped out 5 eggs...
add some sugar and a dash of salt
(gosh, everyone knows this, right?)

initially I was patiently getting these done...
something like french toast...

Then... patience running out...

... eventually ended up frying this way......

they ended up like this... hahahhaa...

in the shops, roti telur is eaten with curry etc etc...
very nice one!

but in my home.. my roti telur is eaten with strawberry jam...
say what you like...
my girl and I "walloped" half a loaf of bread...
and the remaining few pieces
of course, went to Labbie, my Labrador!

*pat stomach*

Satisfaction Guaranteed!

    Your roti telur is definitely healthier than the Mamak's... Less oil, zero flour!

  7. Haha, I guess that was the evolution of Roti Telur! Lol. Anyway those look like French Toast. And I bet they are delicious. My mother loves it. =)

  8. I love to make roti telur too but only once in a while.

  9. mmm, this is a simple yet nice meal. I always love to smell a freshly made french toast. (I actually typed out "frenchly made fresh toast" just now, lol!)

  10. It looks like what we call French Toast here. I love it and just made some this week. Your version looks like part french toast, part omelet. Yum!

  11. Use butter to fry...extra fragrance, much nicer. My daughter loves French toast...

  12. Wah...Roti Claire sure looks inviting...I could almost smell the aroma of eggs from where I am...hehe.

  13. merryn: hehhe... u r more creative.. yes, roti drowning!

    helmi: your mom and me almost same era i guess.. so sure love it..

    wenn: me too.. once awhile only..

    ginny: yes, i m drowning the bread in the egg!

    stp: i wanted to use butter then i realize i left it in my office's fridge! sigh.. so i use olive oil instead..

  14. olive, sure happy to know this!! hahaha..

  15. I miss roti telur! Feel like having one now...... :P

  29. *imagine roti telur with strawberry jam* lol brilliant!

  30. in Singapore, they call it Roti Prata, my son loved it with a little curry gravy.

    On Thursday, I took my Ang Mo married to Sarawak friends to Malaysian cafe.

    She ordered roti canai, which was like roti prata. Came with dhal, chicken or lamb gravy.

    As for you eating it with straw berry jam, my friend's daughter ate them with sugar,

    I make French toast for the kids, I am a noodle person.


  31. Yay! Looks yummy. I would want to try this at home. Thank you for sharing your Roti Prata food experience. ;)


Thank you, readers!
