Roti John is best described as a crispy baguette, with the alluring fragrance from caramelized meat (we used lamb in our recipe!) and onions wrapped into a beautiful parcel with golden fried eggs with ketchup mixture added as a finishing touch. And while the key ingredients are the baguette, eggs and minced meat, you can practically add any topping you like and still manage to make a delicious roti John.
Definitely a versatile dish true to its origins!
