Often paired with curry (or even sugar for some), prata is a comforting Indian dish enjoyed by many in Singapore. Crisp on the outside while fluffy inside, this well-loved bread makes for a flexible choice for breakfast, supper or even just a snack.
While Singapore is home to many prata stalls across the island, there are some names that stand out among the rest. We ask our local culinary experts to reveal which places they visit to satisfy their prata cravings.
1. The Roti Prata house
Chef Han Liguang, chef-owner, Restaurant Labyrinth
"I have been patronising this eatery for its prata since I was a kid with my family as we used to stay around the Upper Thomson area.
Its prata is consistently crispy and does not come across as too dry on the surface. My favourite is the plaster prata—it has a nice buttery fragrance, and a consistent runny yolk when you slice it in half. The curry served with the prata is also thick and flavourful, unlike other places where its curries might be watered down."
