Roti canai or roti chennai is a dish unique to Malaysia, which has its origins lost in the Indian community of those countries. Roti means bread in Hindi (and Malay) The term 'canai' comes from 'channa', a mixture of boiled chickpeas in a spicy gravy from Northern India which it was traditionally served with.

There are many type roti canai served in Malaysia now. Roti telur, roti planta, roti sardine, roti tisu, roti bawang, roti tampal, roti banana, and many more.. even I can not remember all of them.
