A surprise visit and 3 murtabaks from Victory Restaurant

My uncle came alone suddenly bearing murtabak. It was a shock to us, coz we just met our aunt(his wife) and granny to go clearing the graves that morning. My uncle said, here’s your belated birthday present, I didn’t know what to get you. Mom had said a few minutes before uncle came that she was kinda hungry and for him to come bearing 3 Murtabaks it was such a pleasant surprise🙂 I was very touched that my uncle had taken a long bus ride from Teck Whye to Kampong Glam to City Hall to just send me these. He bought it from Victory Restaurant one of the oldest shops that sells these in Kampong Glam.

A Murtabak is basically a dough that’s stretched thinly, a sprinkling of seasoned mutton, a prata is placed on top of the seasoned meat, more seasoned mutton an egg is cracked and the edges of the dough folded over. With more seasoned meat sprinkled on top. It is then fried in ghee till it’s deliciously crispy, served with a side of curry. I like to eat it with tomato ketchup. It’s a savory dish perfect for tea or lunch.

      Hahahahahahaha that is probably why

      There’s a video on YouTube by Peeta Planet on Singapore where they visited the restaurant where my uncle bought the murtabak. I can’t quite figure out how to post the link to the vid it shows how they make the murtabak in the vid too.
