???????????????????????????????

Pictured above is a tissue. Huh? What tissue? For those uninitiated into the local makan scene in Singapore, the above dish is called Roti Tissue because it is a very thin layer of dough. It is a variant of flat bread or roti prata which is eaten locally for breakfast, lunch, dinner or supper. Yes, anytime of the day. I never quite fancy tissue because just feel that there is very little going on. But apparently many people love this snack, perhaps because it just look so proud standing like that.

???????????????????????????????

How would you define a good roti prata? Actually a roti prata is not complete without the accompanying curry. Just like bread without peanut butter or jam is plain boring. I have many friends who prefer the fish curry but I personally like mutton curry better especially when its thick and smooth, like a sauce. Even so, a good curry does not equates to a good prata because the foundation is more important. I know instantly on first bite and taste if I like the prata. I much prefer if I can taste the sweetness of the flour and there is a certain thickness such that I can chew a little on the bread. This makes me more satisfied than a extra crispy one. If I want something crispy I would have some chips instead.

???????????????????????????????

We were pretty much full from all the various prata that we had sampled. Plain (kosong), Cheese for savoury and even Chocolate and Banana as dessert! But when the strawberry prata came, we were all quite wildly excited. Don’t you agree that this ought to be the most pretty prata you have ever seen? (Haha, hope my picture do justice to the prata!). But after much exclaimation, a prata is; afterall a prata. The filling inside is just another flavouring.

How would you like your prata done? I personally like the more conventional prata with eggs and onion.

Thondamans is the top voted stall for the Roti Prata category for Singapore Food Festival 2013. Thondamans has been operating in Singapore for more than 20 years. They actually started out manufacturing putu mayam, a very interesting snack made of rice flour, consumed with grated coconut and sugar. I should blog about it for the benefit of foreign visitors to my blog soon! Other than roti prata, Thondamans also offers a smorgasbord selection of both North and South Indian favourites.

You can savour the 20 voted favourite stores voted from the online polls at the Singapore Food Festival Village to be held from 12 to 21 July 2013 at Bayfront Avenue (near Bayfront train station, Circle Line).
