An Indian Muslim dish universally loved in Singapore, Murtabak is a feather-light pancake filled with minced meat and fried on a hot griddle. Mutton would be the usual choice in Singapore, although lamb, beef or chicken may be used instead. The texture of the dough is light and crispy, the filling wonderfully satisfying—great as an appetiser or a late-night snack.
