This saltish fragrant biscuit is ideally taken by dipping in steaming hot local coffee or with kaya spread.
Its unique name apparently came about during the old days when Indians migrated from their native India to Malaysia seeking greener pastures. As most of these Indians are from the lower-income group and could not afford normal meals, they carried with them this Roti Kapai during their journey. They only consumed this biscuit with plain water. As their mode of transport then was only via ships, which in local Bahasa Malaysia is “Kapal”, the biscuit which was their only food eventually became known as “Roti Kapai”.
