Today is Deepavali and I would like to wish all who celebrate the festival of lights a Very Happy Deepavali. May this special day brings you all lots of peace, love, happiness and good health throughout your life.
Today reminds me of our visit with our family in the USA last year. We brought with us many packets of roti canai and several varieties of ready curry mix. My step daughter and her husband learned to love roti canai when they came to visit us in Malaysia a few years ago.
More recently, when we were there, we decided to have a roti canai and curry feast night. I cooked beef rendang, korma curry prawns and dhall.
It was great cooking for family and seeing them enjoy the food. I wish I could cook this meal for them again soon.
The next time I return to USA we will not need to bring with us the frozen roti canai and ready made curry mix. During the last trip we found all of the packets of ingredients and the roti in the supermarkets there. They have all. Look! LOL!
Packet roti canai and curry done with the ready mix may not be as delicious as doing from it scratch but they are quite authentic and good enough in my opinion, especially for an amateur in cooking Indian cuisine like me.
