Roti Jala

Roti jala or literally translated will be bread net.   It is a made of flour batter, and using a mould with to allow the batter to flow, it is cook on flat pan and then roll.   The batter has to be at a correct consistency, if it is thin it will not form the net, too thick it will not flow continously dow the mould.  It has to be just nice and you have to rotate or turn the mould with the batter in on the pan a few rounds...to get the net kind effect of the crepe....

You can usually eat with any curries - the kids like theirs with chicken curry.
