Roti Jala Recipe
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.
About this Recipe
Ingredients for Malaysian Lace Pancakes :
Aside from flavour, the purpose of milk in a pancake recipe is to dissolve the flour and other ingredients and provide a liquid structure. This means that any liquid will suffice.
Turmeric Powder :
The turmeric root is quite bitter, but has an almost citrusy taste, compared to the powder. Turmeric also has something of a sweet taste, and it is quite earthy. When you use the powder, you're unlikely to notice the texture unless you use a substantial amount, but it is somewhat gritty.

I haven't had this roti jala for a long, long time. When I was young had a Malay neighbour and this grandma used to make this, no gadget, only used her hands to swirl the batter onto the tawa.
Que fácil y que bueno.
