Ingredients
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (150g)
  • ¼ tsp ground turmeric
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 egg (beaten)
  • ¾ cup coconut milk mixed with ¾ cup (180ml) water
  • Vegetable oil to grease pan
Instructions
  1. Sift flour and ground turmeric into a large bowl. Add salt. Stir in beaten egg and coconut milk until a smooth batter forms.
  2. Strain batter to remove any lumps.
  3. Brush a little oil onto a non-stick pan on medium heat. Pour a little batter into the roti jala cup until about half full. Move the cup in a circular motion over the pan to form a lacy pattern. Cook until set. This only takes about 2 minutes. Slide crepe out of pan onto a plate. Repeat until all batter is used up.
  4. When cool enough to handle, fold in both sides of the crepe and roll to form a neat package.
