Roti Jala With Mutton Chukka

Roti Jala? Oh-my-mamma-mia. As easy as people preach, trust me (Kunyit Petai SambalTaucu Steamed Fish, Keluak Chicken Curry & Nasi Kerabu) I had one hack of akin adventure making roti jala for the first time ever. Yes guys. I have never made roti jala before in my entire life. So, I was all over excited and upbeat front, thinking that its gonna be a smooth easy cooking trail. But once I started, actually, making the batter for roti jala and the mutton curry was easy preasy (Dhal Bitter Gourd Curry, Murungakka Fish Curry, Potato Green Peas Curry & Vegetable Green Curry)  when it came to shaping roti jala as a net, using the special plastic cup, I had hell. Real hell. Unsure I am why and what not, I actually struggled for getting it shaped as perfect round net. 

Having said that, I actually did succeed after making the first few roti jala, thereafter my enthusiasm got over me for indirectly hinting I shouldn't be trying so hard, neither spend anymore time in my kitchen (Assam Fish, Chilli Chicken, Aloo Gobi & Spicy Tofu Curry). . Henceforth, I made roti jala as the usual pancake shape, and my other half-half, to tell you the truth, whether roti jala was shaped as perfect round net or just like ordinary pancakes, he loved every bit of roti jala he pinched and dipped into Mutton Chukka. End of story (Lemongrass Lamb Kebab). As long as my other half-half is food satisfied, I will alway be a happy foodie. Roti Jala and Mutton Chukka I tell you (Mutton Curry, Mutton Parathal & Mutton Kurma), is akin match made in heaven for food deliciousness. 

For the roti
1 cup all purpose flour/tepung gandum/wheat flour (mine is all purpose)
1 egg
1 1/2 cup milk (carton milk)
1/2 tsp turmeric/kunyit powder
Water as needed
A pinch of salt.

Add all the ingredients in a bowl except water. 
Whisk together while pouring water bit by bit and continue to whisk for a smooth consistency to stream down the cup.
Heat a flat pan.
Rub a little butter.
Stream the batter from the cup while circling out. 
Cook on both sides.
Careful when you lift the roti as not to break. 
Then either fold or gently roll the roti. 
Do the same to the balance of the batter.
For the mutton chukka
400g mutton - cut into bite sizes
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tbsp plain chilli powder
