Malaysian Lace Pancakes (Roti Jala)

Roti Jala
This is a net pancake that is a speciality of Malaysia...Very easy to make..For making that you will need a squeeze bottle like the one which I showed in the pictures or else you can buy a mould that is specially designed for this,it is available in all plastic shops..It will look something like this. I served this with sesame chicken..

Flour-1 3/4 cup
Milk-1 1/2 cup
Water-1/2 cup
Salt -1 tsp
Turmeric powder-1 tsp
Oil for greasing


Mix everything except oil  together and form a smooth batter.

Heat the tawa on medium heat..Pour the batter in to a squeeze bottle and gently squeeze it over the tawa.

Let it cook on slow flame till golden brown on bottom.Fold it in triangles.

Serve it with spicy chicken curry.


Grab your ingrediants

Take flour,salt,turmeric powder in a bowl

fill this into a squeeze bottle

let it cook on one side completely...fold it into triangles
