This is a typical Malay breakfast dish especially with the southern people. Roti Bawang or Lempeng Bawang is really popular there. Serve with leftover curry, sambal or Asam Pedas. I remembered my mum used to make this for breakfast. I hardly make this my children don't really fancy it, since today I'm home alone again so I made it for my breakfast. It's simple, just like any ordinary crepes except this is a savoury type I added some sliced onions and turmeric powder. Yeah!!! have last night leftover sambal sardine made it a perfect combination for breakfast.

crêpe is a type of very thin pancake (usually made from wheat flour) which the word is of French origin, deriving from the Latin crispa, meaning “curled.” Crêpes  are originally  from Brittany, a region in the northwest of France, their consumption is widespread in France and they are considered a national dish, and they are also increasingly popular in North America and South America…
Here is a simple recipe for 12 crepes :

  •  3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 water
  • 2 Cups of milk / coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup sliced onions
  • 1/2 tsp  turmeric powder
  • Direction for Crepes
Whisk together the flour, butter, eggs, milk, water, turmeric powder and  salt until you form a smooth, thin batter.Add in sliced onions Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before proceeding.
Heat a heavy 6-inch skillet or crepe pan over medium-high heat. When hot, brush with a light coating of the remaining butter or oil. Pour about 1/4 cup of crepe batter into the pan. Cook until golden brown .   

Lempeng Bawang atau Roti Bawang ini memang favorite saya tetapi jarang membuatnya di rumah kerana anak-anak kurang berminat.  Hari ini kebetulan semua ada aktiviti luar jadi saya buat lempeng ini untuk breakfast saya pagi ini. Kebetulan ada lebihan sambal sardin lebihan semalam maka cukup sesuailah di gandingkan dengan lempeng ini. Rasanya lempeng ini terkenal dikalangan masyarakat di sebelah selatan tanah air. Resipi ini mempunyai pengaruh Jawa. Cukup asyik kalau sudah mula memakanya. Apa lgi tentu sedap dengan kopi O.

I like the idea, maybe I'll fry the onion and then add it to the crepe batter, I love the flavor of caramelized onions. Thanks for sharing Fatima :)
