Roti Jala.....Or Net Bread, Anyone!

Here, let me introduce you to another favourite local food I love very much, ROTI JALA ! Also meaning as 'roti' is bread and 'jala' is net. Roti jala is a Malay cuisine which is shaped like a fish net and taste like a pancake or dosa. Roti jala is usually served with curry for savory version or serawa gravy for sweet version. Serawa is a gravy made from the mixture of boiled coconut milk, brown sugar & pandan leaves. Both are taste as fabulous.

And let me show you the gadget I used in making this roti jala and also the Vietnamese net rolls I made long ago. It just a simple gadget. And please do take note, I will be hosting some giveaways soon including books & other stuffs. So, stay tune for more!

And here's the recipe as follow.

Ingredients :
200gm all purpose flour
350ml coconut milk
100ml water
1 egg
a pinch of salt
1/2 tpsn pandan paste
1 tspn turmeric powder

Method :
(1) beat together milk, water & egg.
(2) combine salt, flour & egg mixture into a bowl and mix well, then leave aside for 30mins.
(3) divide mixture into 2 portion, add turmeric powder in one and pandan paste to other portion.
(4) fill one portion of batter to the gadget and follow the method here.

Doesn't this look so irresistible? I bet you're hungry now.... ha..ha.. Enjoy!

Hi Kristy,
Very nice roti jala, do you think I can omit the coconut milk & what can I substitute it with? Your curry chicken looks nice too.

My Little Space said...

Elin : Hey, thanks so much for your sweet comment & glad to see you around. ((hugs))

Delphine : yes, you can replace the coconut milk with low fat milk and omit water if possible.

Thanks ladies for spending your time here. Hope you're having a great day.

Kristy
