Actually this was our iftar menu a few days ago... There are many version of roti jala or roti sorai... either you add condensed milk, ghee, coconut milk or eggs into the batter...only you can decide which recipe triggers your taste buds the most... for me the best roti jala is the one that's soft and creamy and can remain soft for a few hours (the longer the better)... this one is ok.. what I found with this recipe was, it really soft even on the next day... This recipe was from herdawaty abuothman@myresipi. Thanks a million herdawaty and here is the recipe...
Ingredients: (Make about 20 pieces)
- 3 cups plain flour
- 2 1/2 tbsp cooking oil
- 1 teaspoon salt
- a bit of yellow coloring / turmeric powder
- 1 egg
- 2 1/2 cups coconut milk / fresh milk / water or more
- roti jala mould (If you don't have, make a con by using a thick plastic bag or banana leaves and make a tiny hole at the end)
- Put all the ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until well combine.
- Sieve the mixture.
- Add some water if needed. The batter should be smooth, not too thick and not too thin.
- Pour a cup of the batter into the roti jala mould, if the batter can come out smoothly then it's ready to be cook.
- Heat a non-stick pan. If you don't have, just brush some oil/ghee on the pan that you're using.
- When the pan is hot, pour some batter into the mould and start swirling the mould on top of the pan (you know what I mean)
- Leave it for a couple of minutes.. once it's cook, toss it into a plate then fold it into any shape that you like.
- Serve with curry for savoury dish.
- For people with sweet tooth have this with honey or condensed milk.
