It is said to have been originally named “Muttabar” by the Chefs from Kerala, India – ‘Mutta’ meaning “Egg” and ‘bar’ short for “Barotta”which is a derivative of the Hindi word ‘Paratta’ (Flatbread). The name is thought to have mutated to “Muttabag” which means “Folded” in Arabic. Eventually the common name in Arab Countries became “Muttabak”, and in Asian Countries like Malaysia and Singapore, it is called “Murtabak”. In these countries it is mainly made by Indian Muslim Hawkers.
