Roti Jala/ Net Pancake

Roti Jala/ Net Pancake

Roti Jala/Roti kirai is a traditional Malayan snack .Roti Jala literally means net bread and it has a pretty net/ lacy pattern. It is served as a tea time snack with chicken or beef curry. It is considered as a traditional dish of the coastal community and the crepes are inspired from the fishermen net and hence made like a net.To make the roti jala there is a special cup with holes,but if you do not have it you can use a squeeze bottle instead. Try this ,you will surely love it.

All purpose flour- 1 cup
Coconut milk- 1 cup
Water- 1 cup
Turmeric powder- 1/3tsp
Salt- 1/2 tsp
Sugar- 1tsp

In a large bowl add flour, turmeric powder and salt and mix well.
Whisk egg and sugar till light and frothy. Add this into the flour along with coconut milk and water and whisk to make a smooth runny batter (like crepe batter). Strain the batter to make sure there is no lumps.
Pour this batter into a squeeze bottle. You can also take a regular plastic bottle. Make two or three holes on the cap and use it to make the roti jala.
Heat a pan/tawa and grease with little oil. Squeeze the batter over the hot pan in circular motion to create the lace pattern. Allow this to cook in medium heat.When it is cooked gently shake the pan and slide it onto a plate or gently lift with a spatula.Fold the the roti jala into a triangle or roll. Serve with chicken or any spicy curry.

Try this,
Hope you will all enjoy!
