#Roti Jala/Lacy Net Pancakes

#Roti Jala

For #Buffet on Table today I have Malaysia… sorry cuisine from Malaysia  delicious and yummy . See the cuisine is so delicious that I am gobbling up words.

# Roti Jala or Net/Lacy Crepes are deliciously easy to make #Malaysian dish.  The name is derived from the Malay words roti (bread) and jala (net). A special ladle with a five-hole perforation used to form its lacy pattern( I used the jelebi maker).  #Roti jala is usually eaten as an accompaniment to a curried dish, or served as dessert with a sweet dipping sauce.

The girls loved these # Rotis Jala so much I could not keep pace to the speed they were gobbling them up. 😀

Served with a Quick Paneer Sambal that was originally from Tofu Sambal from here since we are not keen on Tofu I used Paneer.

For non-vegetarians, the Chicken Sambal will be yum.

These are the step-wise pics that I have for #How to make Roti Jala
