Jala Roti

Jala roti was on my mind from a very long time but couldn't make it as I didn't have the mold.

A big thanks to my friend Faisal who brought it for me from Singapore.

These lacy, net like crepes look very delicate and beautiful. They look very simple to make but they are not until you practice and master it. Both of us (me and sabu) first practiced it on a plate and finally we could make it.

Infact, Sabu made them all. Good job Sabu.

We relished them with yummy, tangy Malaysian chicken curry.

 Ingredients :

 400 gms flour
2 cups of coconut milk
440 gms water
2 large eggs
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
3-4 tbsp cooking oil to grease the pan

 Method :

 1. Mix all ingredients in a mixing bowl with a whisk it into a smooth batter.

2. Let the batter sit for 1/2 hour.
3. Place a non-stick pan over medium heat.
4. Fill the Roti Jala mold with batter and quickly move the mold in a circular motion to form a lacy pattern.  
    Leave it for few seconds.

5. Flip it over the plate, once it cools, fold it on each side and roll them.

6. Repeat the same with rest of the batter.

7. Enjoy with chicken curry.
