So how is your Valentine getting on? Enjoying with your loved ones or busy with work? Hehehe..
Well, I don't celebrate this day coz everyday is like Valentines for me (of course when my Hubby is around! hiksss..) But then I do appreciate this day, atleast people can show their love/ confess/ propose to the person they love. And rose price will hike too. Red roses, gorgeous!
So, get into LOVE!
FYI, my valentine will be returning home this Friday..Yeayyyy!
Okey back to the menu today, Roti Jala, or in other words Lacy or Net Crepes. A very famous Malaysian delicacy. We just loved it with chicken or mackerel curry. It's always one of our choice for dinner!
To make the Roti Jala, you will need the special mould, a cup with 5 holes underneath. You can also use any ketchup plastic bottles to squeeze and swirl the lace. But there is one bottle which is quite famous among the Malaysian bloggers called Japanese Mayo Bottle.
Thanks to Kak Nor for letting me know about Daiso at IOI Mall Puchong! I grabbed 3 bottles....hehehe! We've been to IOI many times before but always hanged around the old wing...haishhhh! Never knew Daiso and my Hubby's favourite ACE Hardware are at the new wing.
I had some leftover chicken curry and nothing else came to mind but Roti Jala. You must be wondering what is so special with Roti Jala that I'm talking about right? You gotto try it to know the secret!
Okey, let's have a look at the recipe I'm glued to all these while.
- 2 cups plain flour
- 2 1/2 cups fresh milk ( may sub with thin coconut milk)
- a pinch of salt
- 1 egg ~ beaten
- 1 tsp yellow colouring
1. Put all ingredients into blender jug and blend for 2 minutes until smooth. Scrape the sides of the jug once a while to avoid lumps.
2. Pour the batter into a bowl.
3. Place a nonstick pan over a medium heat.
4. Fill the Roti Jala mould with batter and quickly form a lacy pattern over the pan. Move the mould in a circular motion. Leave it for few seconds.
5. Once cooked, turn it over on a plate. (cook only one side)
6. Fold the crepe into quarters or roll and stack up.
7. Repeat the same with rest of the batter.
