Tasty Homemade Roti John Recipe
|Homemade Roti John|
There are many variations of roti john, from the choice of buns, the fillings, till the sauce to go with the bread. Of course, my homemade version of Roti John is inspired by Roti John Puteri Erra, from Malacca town with some of my own twists.
|Roti John with cabbage, egg, tuna, mayo and chili sauce|
- soft hotdog buns
- tuna flake
- cabbage cut into stripes
- garlic chili sauce
- chili powder
- soy sauce
First, beat the eggs with tuna flake, soy sauce, chili powder and pepper. Set aside for later use. Next, heat up the frying pan and melt the margarine in the pan. Pour in the egg mixture in the pan then place the halved hotdog bun on the egg mixture. Briefly pan-fried the bun until the egg is cooked and the bun turns crispy. Lastly, sandwich the cut cabbage stripes, mayonnaise and garlic chili sauce in the crisped bun. Voila, the piping hot Roti John is ready to be served.
a. you may opt for ice-burg lettuce instead of cabbage. But trust me, cabbage tastes better
b. Margarine is a better option than butter and oil as it brings in the light salty taste and appealing color to the buns
c. tuna flake and chili powder are optional. I added in tuna flake to enhance the texture and chili powder is for the kick. Spicy food is yummy!
I seriously like my homemade Roti John very much, but would experiment the other variations next time. Perhaps the Berkat Roti John’s version which serves with vinegar chili sauce and cucumber slices.
