Festive Raya Recipe Courtesy of Makan Kitchen: Roti Jala

Roti Jala is always a hit dish for the foreigners and locals alike at my work place. Whenever the hosts wanted to showcase local cuisine to their foreign guests, we tend to have this dish to go with Chicken Curry. Instead of making the lacy crepe to be laid out and served, we actually prepare the hot plate and all the necessary utensils to let the guests have a go in making the roti jala. It's always a very fun process that even the young guests are delighted at it.

This is Chef Zul's recipe and from the photo, I can see there's a greenish version where most likely pandan juice is added for the colour and fragrant, and do omit the serbuk kunyit (turmeric powder) for this version.
