Net Pancakes (Roti Jala)

from the video 3 Amazing Styles Of Pancakes ▶︎


for 6 servings

  • 2 cups (250 g) flour
  • 1 cup (235 mL) water
  • 1 cup (235 mL) coconut milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • vegetable oil, as needed

Special Equipment

  • 1 plastic water bottle
  • 1 sharp pointed knife


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, water, coconut milk, eggs, salt, and turmeric until smooth. (If any clumps remain, run mixture through a sieve.)
  2. Using a sharp-pointed knife (a corkscrew or nail works just as well), poke three holes in the cap of a plastic water bottle.
  3. Fill the bottle with your pancake batter.
  4. Heat a very lightly greased nonstick skillet over medium heat. Working quickly, invert the water bottle and drizzle the batter in quick circular motions forming a netlike pattern.
  5. Allow the pancake to cook for one to two minutes. Do not flip and watch closely so it doesn’t burn.
  6. Remove from pan, fold in the sides, and roll up. Serve with curry.
  7. Enjoy!
