Martabak is a dish that is loved by many around the world. However, no one knows the origin of the dish and it’s quite tricky to pin down where it came from.

Some believe it originated in Yemen, where Indian traders discovered it and brought the recipe back home.

While others posited that the dish, known as mutabar, had originated in Kerala, India. It is believed that Indian merchants introduced it to Yemen, where it was renamed and gained popularity across the Arabian Peninsula.

Nevertheless, it is a dish that is enjoyed by many to this day.
