Added by GrowinKitchen | Wed 09 Mar 2011 @ 11:05
Roti jala literally translated as net bread, but some people called it as lacy pancake too. It is more savory than common pancakes, because the use of coconut milk. In Aceh, roti jala usually served along lamb curry. But it worked well with tuna and wild rocket salad too.
Happy belated Pancake Day 2011!
250 g self-raising flour
½ teaspoon salt
2 eggs (lightly beaten)
500 ml coconut milk
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil (or melted butter in the same amount)
6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1½ tablespoon lemon juice
¼ teaspoon of salt
¼ teaspoon of coarsely ground black pepper
¼ teaspoon of cumin powder
½ bird\'s eye chili (seeded and finely chopped, optional)
150 g tuna in oil
1 pack of wild rocket
1. Mix flour with salt, egg, coconut milk and olive oil (or butter). If you don\'t have roti jala mold (like me) just put the mixture in a plastic, bind tightly and cut one end.
2. Pre-heat pan and put in a little butter until melted. Pour the mixture in circular order to form a net (or anyway you like it). Allow pancake to set on top then flip. Repeat to the rest of the batter.
3. Put oil, lemon juice, salt, black pepper, cumin and bird\'s eye chili in a jar. Add 1 tablespoon oil from tuna, shake well.
4. In a large bow, mix tuna and wild rocket. Dress with the vinagraitte.
5. Serve roti jala and tuna salad together in a plate.
Yield 8 serves.
