Murtabak Mengkasar

Pekan, is the Royal Town of Pahang, and so the history goes. The town always being associated with royal activities, the polo spot and of course this particular dish, Murtabak Mengkasar. In Malaysia, you can find 'murtabak' at almost every nooks and cranny and it would depends on one's preference on how the wish their murtabak is. My selection is, the murtabak should have lots of minced meat, with smaller portion of diced onion and balanced well with herbs and spices, of course wrapped thinly with 'roti canai-like' wrap. I would say, murtabak is like a lasagna minus the bechamel sauce and it's grilled not baked.
