Roti Jala & Meat Curry

This recipe is a type of pancake and is very easy to do and goes very well with meat curry.

Roti Jala

2 cups Plain Flour
1/2 tsp Salt
2 Eggs beaten
2-1/2 cups Evaporated Milk (Carnation brand is the best bet)

Put all ingredients into the blender and blend till the mixture is smooth.
If you don't have a blender, you can mix all with a spoon (never say die ok!)
Grease and heat non-stick pan on low heat.
Put a ladleful of batter in roti jala mould, in circular motion over the pan so that the the pancake will have a lacy pattern.
Cook for 2 minutes and turn over onto a dish.
I would prefer to fold 2 pancakes into one for firmness.
Fold the pancakes into quarters.

If you do not have a roti jala mould, you can use the Carnation Milk can and use a nail to create holes under the can. Mesti jadi punya!

Meat Curry

Blended ingredients

2 large red onions
4 garlic
2 inches ginger
1/2 packet of curry powder (Baba's is my favorite)
4 potatoes, cut in quarters
cilantro for decoration

Other ingredients

1 onion cut in thin slices (for frying)
santan (if you desire, I don't use santan for my curry)
1.5 lbs meat (lamb, chicken or beef, as you wish)
fennel, star anise, cumin seeds and cinnamon stick - 'spice friends'

Heat pot with a little oil.
Add in the 'spice friends' and then the sliced onions, cook for 3 minutes (or until the onion gives an aroma).
Put in the blended ingredients and let it cook for about 8 mins (when the oil starts to appear from the mixture, dont forget to stir!).
Then put in the meat and potatoes, and add about 4 cups of water.
Leave to boil and stir occasionally.
Once the potatoes are cooked and meat is tender, turn the heat off and top it with cilantro.

I'm already salivating from looking at the pics. Cannot forget the roti kirai & curry that you packed for us 1wk supply in Ramadhan 2004... yummyy
This recipe looks simple .. but the last time I tried helping my mum with roti kirai .. the roti came out looking like lots of disjointed dots.

lilac, thats why lah u must cuba dan try again. then call me for testing hehehe.

ah ayu aper lagi dong...mau try?

ruby, just dont put santan and no substitute. we use to put santan but then tak healthy lah, nanti gumuk hehehe. so we removed the santan and the curry taste just as good! pedas? i think some curry powder not so pedas kan? kalau u tak nak pedas then maybe u can put santan or fresh milk to saturate the pedas.

1na, sorry, cilantro is daun ketumbar :)

Hi Ely

Most Roti Jala recipes use santan but you recommended Evaporated milk. Any difference in taste?

I love cooking curry too but never try without santan..how's the taste? no more lemak right?

Thanks for advice!
