Roti Jala

This is a Malaysian lacy pancake awesome treat for breakfast, tea or's easy to make..tastes awesome with curries....

Ingredients :

1 cup wheat flour + 1 tbsp rice flour
1 cup milk
1/2 cup water (adjust to the pouring consistency)
1 egg
1/3 tsp salt
yellow colouring (if needed)
butter or ghee to grease pan

mix all the above ingredients to a consistency that's not too watery or too thick as you need to pour it through the mould,....using a whisk helps..

Heat a tava till hot..grease with ghee or butter...Take some batter using roti jala mould and pour in circles on the heated tava...turn once the bottom part is not sticking..cook for few minutes and transfer it to a plate and fold into a triangle...continue with the remaining mixture...

Serve with kurma or curry....;)
