Net Pancakes (Roti Jala)


In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, water, coconut milk, salt, and turmeric until smooth. (If any clumps remain, run mixture through a sieve.)

Using a sharp-pointed knife (a corkscrew or nail works just as well), poke three holes in the cap of a plastic water bottle. Fill the bottle with your pancake batter.

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.

Allow the pancake to cook for one to two minutes. Do not flip and watch closely so it doesn’t burn.
