Four pieces of this netted bread? (literally translated) cost a mere RM1 which is equivalent to USD25 CENTS! It comes with a packet of nice curry as dip. Roti jala is made from flour, eggs, coconut milk (I am guessing only) which is put into a special ‘cup’ with holes. We pour the batter into the ‘cup’, and let the batter drips over a hot pan. Then, what we get is a netting of very soft and tasty pancake- like roti.
It is normally sold, folded into four. Sometimes, people will use the netted pancake to fill up some potatoes and curry chicken fillings. Very much like a spring roll.
I am not sure what the Malays call this grilled chicken. It is seasoned with tumeric and other spice and grilled over charcoal fire. The wonderful barbeque chicken fragrance wafts through the whole place. So, my kids demanded for some. Each piece, i.e. a quarter chicken cost RM4. A packet of curry which is sweetish and taste of lemongrass was given to us. My kids did not dip the chicken in the curry so I finished the whole bowl of curry! Drank it like soup. 🙂
