roti jala

Our malaysian community here is very keen on the Sunday bola match organized by the bola fans, and partially the fame is being played by the malaysian food being sold during the day. Orders are taken few days prior to the match. And, one of my favorite is roti jala.But unfortunately, the girls were having practical test last week and decided to study and close orders.
So, i got the recipe from Teta and borrowed her acuan (crepe maker) which looks like a bronze spaceship which is preparing to take off...
This is the recipe if anyone is interested to try out. It's very easy!
1. 2 cups of plain flour
2. 2 cups of milk
3. one spoonful of butter
4. 2 eggs
5. a pinch of salt
you can replace the (2) with 1.5 cup of water + 1/2 cup of santan(coconut milk).

utensil: Non-stick frying pan and acuan or Lacy crepe maker

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and beat until well blended.
  2. Strain batter through a fine sieve to remove lumps. Set aside for 15 minutes.
  3. Lightly heat a non-stick frying pan.
  4. Grease lightly with oil and run the batter in a lacy pattern into the pan from the lacy crepe maker. Fold crepe whilst still in pan.Do this fast as it gets burn easily!!
  5. Repeat until all the batter is used up.
  6. Serve hot or cold with Chicken Curry. yum yum!
well... ShuYu, Danny,Tong and I tried out our 1st roti jala...it didn't go smooth at first few attempts....


The lacy pattern of the batter ..er...deformed
(looks more like a berlubang-lubang pancake for me!)



failure...




well, the roti folded together...TOGETHER!




We thought that the consistency of the batter is too thick. So, ShuYu added a little bit of water to dilute it...wooolaaaah!
she's got the correct fomula!




The success grin from Danny!




Tong also got the chance to share the glory




Here you go....roti jala with chicken curry.
