Roti Jala

Finally I'm able to get my hands back in blogging, I guess for awhile. Eventho, I in my last trimester of pregnancy, I got two months left before the little one arrives, but it didn't stop me from getting myself busy with cooking and baking.

The first day of Eid me and hubby prepared rendang daging, ayam, ketupat, dalcha, chicken curry, harrisa and roti jala. It might sound a lot, but the first day of Eid is all the family members will be at my place. 

Roti Jala has been a tradition in my family since younger days. And I want to remain the tradition.
