Easy Roti Jala Recipe (Lacey Crepes)

Roti Jala Recipe (“Net Bread”), an alternative to rice, is an excellent accompaniment to rich gravy dishes such as mutton curry or sambal tumisRoti Jala is a traditional Malay recipe traditionally ladled into a roti jala mold, a contraption that looks very much like a measuring cup with holes poked in the bottom. It is made with flour, milk and an egg that is grilled with a non-stick pan to cook. This recipe is so easy to make which i would you recommend to try this at home!

Ingredients (20-30 crepes)
  • 2 3/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
  • 2 cup water
  • 1 pkt instant coconut milk powder or 2cups coconut milk
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs

1. Mix (or using an electric mixer briefly at the end to get rid of lumps) to a consistency batter and put into a cup with few holes at the bottom, or a mustard bottle. If you have the "roti jala" mould, would be great.

2.  Set a heavy-based frying pan on low-medium heat and grease with oil. Swirl around on a heated grill or non stick pan like a thin pancake. Wait for the batter to set about 20-30 seconds.

3. Cook only one side. Fold the crepe into quarters or roll and stack up.

4. Repeat all of the above steps, adding oil to the pan each time until the batter is used up. Serve roti jala with hot curry or sambal tumis.
