Roti Bread Recipe

My recipe inspirations come from all over, but this particular dish was specifically inspired by my favorite Thai appetizer, Pan Fried Roti Bread.

I re-created the delicious appetizer to dip in my Curry Potato and Mushroom Soup, then used the remaining bread for these Thai Peanut Pulled Pork Roti Bread Pizzas!
