Making Garlic Oil in the Thermomix

Roti Jala (Net Bread)

I made roti jala yesterday for breakfast. It is a popular Malay snack that is served with curry. Here are the ingredients for roti jala:


350g plain flour

25 g cooking oil

1 egg

1 tsp turmeric powder

2 tsp salt

200g coconut milk

400g water

25 g cooking oil


Place plain flour, cooking oil, egg, turmeric, salt, coconut milk and water in a mixing bowl and blitz it for 2 minutes at speed 4. If you do not have a thermomix, you can use any kitchen food processor.

Next transfer the mixture into a roti jala dispenser bottle which comes with spouts.

Turn on the stove and place a non-stick frying pan over a medium fire. Grease the pan lightly.

Squeeze the roti jala dispenser bottle slightly above the frying pan and moved it in an irregular pattern in a circular motion.

Cook the roti jala on both sides until it is golden brown. Roll them to form a cylinder. It is best to eat them warm with chicken curry.
