As a follow up to my Cape Malay Culinary Experience, here is the recipe for making the delicious flaky and fluffy roti. The process is a bit daunting for those who are not used to being in the kitchen much. Otherwise, you just need to know how to roll ( with a rolling pin), twirl, skip rope and roll some more. Happy rotirollin’.
While you are making the roti, listening to some chilling music and sipping on some wine, you might like to have your Cape Malay Chicken Curry gently simmering and releasing aromatic flavours in the background – just to add to the authentic ambience. I have also included a really simple recipe for the Cape Malay version of sambal, a chilli based sauce used to compliment curries. This version is possibly a little more vinegary than most but can be adjusted to suit your taste. Learn more about the Cape Malay culture. The cuisine is as colourful as the people!
