S(Infographics) – Pratalogy


S(Infographics) – Pratalogy by the folks at Blue Pill Red Pill

Some call it prata. Others say roti prata. Malaysians know it as roti canai. For those who aren’t familiar with this crispy, flaky, and buttery flatbread derived from India; think of it as the lovechild of a tortilla and croissant.

I tend to swear by the classic kosong (plain) or telur (egg); while the adventurous ones know no limits as to what they like to have concealed (be it sweet or savoury, or even both) within the folds of the pan-fried concoction – as depicted above.

Whatever your fancy, this unpretentious and humble crispy-on-the-outside-yet-oh-so-fluffy-on-the-inside goodness is a common sight on Singaporean as well as Malaysian plates. Traditionally a breakfast staple, it is now widely consumed at almost any time of the day – including supper (especially for those who’ve had one too many nightcaps).

No prizes for guessing what I’ll be having for breakfast tomorrow…

      Me too!

      It serves its purpose as being an informative and foolproof “cheat sheet” that showcases one of Singapore’s favourite (yet sadly, often under-appreciated) food offerings.
