How to make Roti Boyan (Boyanese Bread)


Recipe for Roti Boyan (Indonesian Bread). Roti Boyan is a pancake bread made of dough composed of fat, egg, flour and water. Roti Boyan is traditionally served with "Sambal Ikan Bilis", which is a really satisfying snack. Sold at malay stalls for about $2.50 each. The Baweanese are a significant community among the Malays of Singapore. "Boyanese" refers to a dialect group in the Malay community.

Ingredients :

For the skin dough
1 kg flour
200g butter
400 ml lukewarm water
3 onions sliced (Fry the onions till half cooked and slightly soft)
Salt to taste

The filling
600 g potatoes - washed, remove skin, boil till soft, and mashed
4 to 5 eggs
100 g spring onions - chopped
3 onions - diced
1 teaspoon pepper
Salt to taste

Method :

To make the bread :
Mix water, butter, onions and salt. Add in flour, a little at a time into the liquid mixture and knead till a soft dough is formed. Make into a few small balls (must be in even numbers) and leave to rest for a while.

To prepare the filling :
Mix well mashed potatoes, egg, chopped spring onion, diced onion, pepper and salt.

1. Roll flat one of the doughs and brush some oil on top. Roll like a swiss roll and swirl it like the shape of a cinnamon bun. Leave to rest while you finish doing the same thing with the rest of the doughs.
2. Roll flat the swirled dough. Spread some filling on top and cover with another piece of flatten dough.
3. Secure the edge.
4. Fry with a bit of oil on low heat till golden brown.
5. Serve hot with Sambal Ikan Bilis.

Hi, the answer will be approximately 10 breads. As a guide, most recipes that weight 1 kg will serve to the average of 10 pax. This will also goes to poultry, meat and such. So if 500 g flour will serve about 5 pax.
