Roti Jala – Net bread

The literal translation of roti jala is “net bread” in Malay, but it is crepes with coconut milk.

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups coconut milk
1 cup water
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp turmeric powder


Whisk coconut milk, eggs, water, salt and turmeric powder. Sift all-purpose flour into a mixing bowl. Stir in coconut-egg mixture gradually and mix until a thin “crepe-like batter” is achieved. Strain the batter through a fine sieve if needed.

On med-low heat, grease and heat a griddle or a medium sized non-stick pan. I used my new iron cast pan. Put a ladleful of better into a roti jala mould and in a circular motion, form a thin lacy pattern in the pan. Cook until set, turn over onto a plate.

I used squeeze bottle for forming crepe.
