Roti jalar

Ingredients to make Roti jalar

  • 1+1/2 cups maida
  • 2 cups thin coconut milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 shallots
  • 1 tsp fennel seeds
  • salt
  • ghee for shallow fry

How to make Roti jalar

  1. In a blender, add all ingredients except ghee and blend it to fine batter without any lumps. The batter should not be too thick, it should have a flowing constituency.
  2. Heat a non-stick flat pan over medium heat.
  3. When you are ready to make the roti jala, pour the batter using a ladle into the mould.
  4. Immediately, hold the mould over the hot pan and swirl the mould to create a net shape.
  5. After pouring the batter into net shape, let the bottom side of the roti jala turn golden in color.
  6. Drizzle 1 tsp ghee over the roti jala.
  7. Flip the crepe to the other side and let other side turn light golden in color.
  8. Take and serve hot with chicken or meat curry

My Tip:

If the batter is dripping as drops, add some water to thin it down, the batter should flow easily through the holes.
