Food prices in bazar Ramadhan is not exactly cheap these days. Above RM8 for Roti John is a bit nuts if you ask me. Might as well do it at home, you get more value for your money!

Customise your roti!

Serves 4 people

You can use leftover beef and chicken to make this. No food wastage!

You need to dilute down the eggs so it doesn't become an omelette
