I have no idea how this sandwich got it's name....it's sound Mat Salleh (western) but it is a popular street food in Malaysia and Singapore. Roti John is a sandwich and omelet in one. Beef, eggs, chopped shallots and chili paste are stirred together and spread on a split French baguette. The bread is cooked in a pan, on both sides, then sliced before serving. It may sound plain but the addition of chili paste — or sambal, as it is called in Singapore and Malaysia — really gives this sandwich omelet an amazing kick.
I made the omelette the murtabak way.....with minced beef and curry powder. I don't use baguette..it's a bit hard instead I bought the long hot dog bread. Toast the bread with extra crunchy and it made the sandwich fantastic
