Roti Jala (Net bread)

I have wanted to make roti jala for a long time but never come round to it. So the mould has been sitting in my kitchen cabinet for awhile. Since I've prepared curry chicken the night before, so it's high time to put my roti jala mould to good use.

Roti Jala
Ingredients (make about 12 pieces)
  • 125g flour
  • 1 large eggs
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 cup of coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp of vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp tumeric powder
  • 1 pinch of salt
  1. Mix all the above ingredients except oil to form a runny batter. Then add in the oil, mix well and set aside.
  2. Prepare a non stick pan. Heat on low heat, lightly grease with some vegetable oil. Once it's hot, scoop a laddleful of batter onto the mould and run it over the pan. You can see the video here how it's being made.
  3. Once it's cook, transfer from the pan to a plate. You can wrap it in traingle form or roll it.
  4. Served with curry.
I like my roti jala, tasty with authentic Malaysian curry.

Hi, Christine,

I'm fine thank you. I just came back from Perth attending a reunion gathering with my hubby and his classmate which they haven't seen each other for almost 30 years.I've tried the roti jala and my kids do enjoy eating :)
