Roti Jala and Malaysian Curry Chicken RecipeMay 31st, 2008Malaysia Guides, Recipes, Malaysian Recipes, Recipes38 Comments
Roti Jala–means “net bread” literally–is another Malaysian delicacy that deserves special introduction on Rasa Malaysia. These lacy and net like pancakes/crepes are very popular during the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, where vendors set up temporary stalls selling roti jala to go with various curries offered. Roti Jala is also very popular as an afternoon tea snack. For me, I can eat them anytime of the day as long as I have some curries to go with them. I have always wanted to make Roti Jala, but there is a problem, I didn’t have the mold. Recently I brought one back from home, together with the pie tee mold that I’d blogged about. I got to play with my new toy yesterday and dished out these fantabulous Roti Jala…(learn how to make roti jala with my YouTube video after the jump)
Making Roti Jala was a fun exercise, so much so that I had to capture the following video to share with you. Suffice it to say, the mold was really easy to use; in no time, I finished up the batter and made 12 gorgeous looking lacy lads. (I can also totally use the mold to make this fabulous eggnet salad I had at Longrain, Sydney!) No Roti Jala is complete without curries, so I whipped up some chicken curry with an instant curry paste.
Malaysian food is just so varied, compelling, and stimulating–not a single meal is ever boring, bland, or uninteresting.
