Malaysian Roti Jala

0 rating

Served as a snack alongside curries and stews, Malaysian Roti Jala (“net bread”) has a delicate, web-like look. It’s traditionally made with a special mold using several small spouts to pour the batter, but you can substitute the Whiskware™ Batter Mixer—just be prepared to work quickly while creating a lacey pattern in the pan.
