Roti Jala

Roti Jala a.k.a Net bread is a Malaysian snack which is served with meat curries. I have grown up eating roti jala and it is an addiction. It not only tastes good but looks amazing with its lacy appearance. My favorite place to enjoy roti jala was at the night market (pasar malam) in Malaysia. They had incredible, soupy chicken curries, to dip the roti jala in. Yummm! Try this at home with some Malay Chicken Curry 🙂
