Murtabak on Wikipedia:

Murtabak or Mutabbaq (Arabic: مطبق) is a dish which is commonly found in Saudi Arabia (especially the Hejaz region), Yemen, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, and Brunei. Depending on the location, the name and ingredients can significantly vary. The name mutabbaq (or sometimes mutabbag) in Arabic means "folded". In Malaysia, where it is called "Murtabak", it is sold by Mamak salesmen, and usually includes minced mutton, along with garlic, egg and onion, and is eaten with curry sauce.
