Roti Telur Gedik beside Grand Alora Hotel Alor Star Kedah Malaysia JK1291

This was the first time that I have tasted this pretty looking style of roti canai (prata) known as roti telur gedik.

We were staying a couple of nights at the Grand Alora Hotel in Alor Star, Kedah in Malaysia.

After the day's work was done, we stepped out of the hotel to check out the road side stalls just outside the hotel. We had just eaten a sumptuous official dinner, so our stomach space was severely limited. But, how can we not check out the local street food before calling it a night, right? :-D

There were just 8, maybe 10 stalls along this short stretch of road. The stalls here open every evening from around 5:30pm to 10:30pm (and are closed on Tuesdays). There were lots of local people relaxing at these stalls in the cool of the evening.

There was a satay man at the end of the row.

Next to the satay stall was the fried kway teow stall. The smoke and aroma from this stall filled the street.

There was an apom balik stall at the end nearer to the hotel.

This roti canai (prata) stall caught our attention because of this dish called roti telur gedik. It's something we have never seen before until now.

The stall owner is Encik Ali who was a car salesman before taking up the trade of making and selling roti canai five years ago.

Encik Ali still has the showmanship and salesman acumen in him which helped convinced us to pick his roti canai from among all the stalls here.

Roti telur gedik is regular prata kosong, cut into bite size squares. It is then topped with a lightly pan seared egg with the yolk barely cooked. The prata is then slathered with a dash of sambal chili. The whole plate is then splashed with a near overflowing flood of thick sloshy curry.

The gentle crispness of the roti prata was slightly soften by the mildly spicy curry. The sambal chili was savoury sweet spicy giving the dish a layered kind of spiciness. The half cooked egg added a creaminess to the curry as well as a nice eggy flavour.

It's a delicious twist to the good old roti prata.

I enjoyed roti telur gedik and hope to find this in Singapore and Johor too :-D We actually wanted to just share a plate together but later found space in our stomachs for one roti telur gedik each.

Each serving costs RM2.00.

Of course, we can't have roti canai without a mug of teh terik.

  3. Just ask to pour the gravy and add telur mata lembu

  4. Dunno what they were called in Singapore, but in Johor the closest you can get to this is by ordering roti tampal goyang banjir (goyang equivalent to gedik - its bit feminist remark actually)

I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is the same as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
