Malaysian Roti Jala

Malaysian Roti Jala or net pancakes are the Malaysian treat, perfect served with curry.

Ingredients

  • 150g plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 180ml coconut milk
  • 180ml water
  • Vegetable oil to grease pan

Steps

  1. Sift flour and ground turmeric into a large bowl. Add salt.
  2. Stir in beaten egg and coconut milk until a smooth batter forms.
  3. Poke three holes into the lid of an empty water bottle, pour the batter into the bottle and replace the lid.
  4. Brush a little oil onto a non-stick pan on medium heat. Move the bottle in circular motions over the pan to form a pattern. Cook until set and repeat until all the batter is used up.
  5. When cool enough to handle, fold in both sides of the lacy pancake and roll to form a neat package.
  6. Serve with curry.
