As we dive deep in the Malaysian cuisine, we still have not reached the bottom of it. And today we will introduce you to a popular Malaysian snack – Roti Jala.
Roti jala is a savory crepe consisting of flour, eggs, milk, and turmeric powder. Literally translated, roti jala means net bread or net pancake, referring to its intricate net design inspired by the nets of Malaysian fishermen.
The roti jala is a pretty dish that looks like a lace doily due to the way it is made. It is commonly served warm alongside curries (especially potato and chicken curry), and it is recommended to pair it with a cup of tea.
Traditionally, it is prepared for numerous Malaysian festivities and celebrations such as weddings and birthdays.
