Roti Jala – Easy Malaysian Lacy Pancakes

  Roti Jala – translated, means Net Bread – These thin lacy quick and easy pancakes are very easy to make. They are served with a good Malaysian Chicken or Vegetable curry.

You will need the Roti Jala Funnel to make these, or you can make holes in a plastic cup and use this as a make shift. Some  make this with plain flour only – I prefer to use half rice flour and half plain flour. Very light and soft with a coco – nutty aroma. Great served with Chicken Curry Kapitan or Other Malaysian Chicken Curry. (Recipe for Malaysian Chicken Curry).
