Roti Tampal

We had lunch out. Nearly everyone does. It would feel a dreadful shame if you were to eat at the local canteen when just a stone's throw away you have tasty cheaper choices. I learnt a new thing to order at the mamak stall today. Roti Tampal, which is pretty similar to roti telur except it's less oily ( feels healthier which may not be so important to some of us ahem ) and it is tastier. I ate mine with very minimal lashings of curry. I wonder now whether it is actually the same thing and the difference of oil is a result of different restaurants rather than them being separate entities. Lunch was  a cheery affair. There were 9 drinks and just 4 of us. So you now know some at the table could store water like camels whereas the more normal of us drank more than one glass.
