Yesss! This is exactly that yummy tasty curry served with Roti Canai.
Every time we go to a Malaysian restaurant, we order Roti Canai and literally drink the curry till the last drop. It is that good! I was very happy when I cracked the code behind this masterpiece. And that night, even though we were already full, we couldn’t stop eating it.
