This is a very sumptuous , incredibly delicious and it was made the cheater's way, semi-homemade using store bought Roti Paratha. Roti Paratha/Canai comes frozen and there are 5 in a packet. It is inexpensive and all the Asian stores here sell them. Look for them in the freezer section and make sure that is is Made in Malaysia - the texture and taste is better. If you would like to make the roti from scratch, refer to http://lilyng2000.blogspot.com/2005/06/roti-canai-with-dhall-char.html
5 pieces frozen Roti Paratha/Canai
1/2 pound ground meat(of your choice)
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 heaped tbsp curry powder
salt to taste
Cook the filling by browning the ground meat(add some oil, if the meat is very lean).
When the meat is no more pink, add in chopped onion and curry powder.
Stir and saute until aromatic and add salt to taste.
Cool before adding in the eggs.
To make the murtabak:
Heat a nonstick pan and place a piece of frozen roti on it.
As soon as it turns soft, put a few tbsp of filling in the center of roti(do not put too much, otherwise, the roti cannot be folded in a neat pack).
Fold in the sides to make a neat pack(refer to pictures above)
Add in a little oil for crispiness. Fry until brown on all sides.
Dish out and serve hot, it tastes great as is or served with pickled onions
To make pickled onions:
Red /yellow/white onions(red will give a pleasing color)
Slice peeled onions thinly and add salt, sugar and vinegar. Adjust to taste.
Let onions sit for at least 1/2 hour before serving.
