Roti Benggali @ Penang

This is a Penang's traditional bread call Roti Bengali. The roti is baked as a "patta" of eight mini-loaves - two rows of four mini-loaves with a dark-brown crispy crust.

It is normally sold by these Indian gentlemen on bikes or bicycles. They will go around the little villages and towns with their signature 'ding, ding, ding' bell.

A small loaf costs about RM0.90. ( A loaf can be cut into 4 slice, so it’s RM0.45/slice )  The roti man will slice it and spread with margarine and seri kaya. Otherwise, this tastes great dipped in curries.
