Roti Jala

Had leftover potatoes cooked in curry from yesterday and as my family has been bugging me to make roti
jala for some time, I went to dig up "Singapore Cooking Book 2-  By Mrs Leong" recipe.  And went to buy a roti jala mould for 60 cents from a neighbourhood sundry shop.

I found the mixture too thick to go through the strainer, so had to trial and error to keep adding water before the consistency allowed it to flow rather smoothly. I do not know whether it is the holes that are too small, or the mixture is too thick.

Finally the roti jala turned out to be thinner than I wanted, however its texture was fine and does not stick to one's teeth when you bite into it.

Here's my roti jala, goes superb with the potato curry. Yum yum.


Ingredients: (makes 12, diameter 8")
225 ml (8 fl. oz)  milk
2 eggs
salt ( I used 1/2 tsp )
225 g  (8 oz ) all purpose flour - sieved
1 tablespoon oil

1) Mix all ingredients together (except oil), and strain the batter. If the batter is too thick, add water until desired consistency is reached.  Add 1 tablespoon of oil and set aside for 15 minutes.

2)  Heat up a non-stick pan with  medium low heat and grease it with some oil.

3)  Pour some batter into the mould and quickly transfer to the pan, make circular movement from outer part of the pan to inside of the pan, then make a zigzag movement from left to right and zigzag up and down.

4)  Leave the crepe to cook for 10-15 seconds (or the tops is set and done, the bottom turns light brown).
     Fold the crepe into half, then in half again to form a triangle shape.  Remove from the pan and set aside.        Repeat until all batter is used.

5)  Serve with your  favourite curry.  Enjoy.


  1. Veronica, your roti jala looks so lovely. I bought the mould two years ago but I still haven't make it. Now that I've seen your delicious roti jala, I think I should get the mould out to use it. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Veronica, this is so yummy! But I am just too lazy to make the roti jala :D

  4. hi, I know it's been a while, but where did you get your mould from? I'm having trouble finding one!

    1. Hi, this mould can easily get from the sundry shop , or Malay shop. if you are living in Singapore, you can get from the baking ingredient shops , Phoon Huat, Ghim Heng Lee and Geylang Serai market. You even can try at Daiso.
