Roti Boyan (Bawean)


Ingredients :

For the skin
1 kg flour
400 ml lukewarm water
100 ml vegetable oil
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt

For the filling
600 g potatoes ~ washed, boil till soft, remove the skin and mashed (I just peel the skin before boiling)
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, oil, baking powder, sugar 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. To be served with sambal.

Thank you Sis Rossya for this lovely recipe!


  1. This was indeed a simple recipe. I wasn't sure how to roll the dough like a "swiss roll" but I assumed it was to fold the dough several times to make it crispy when frying later. Anyway, the dough and the filling was yummy! Thanks for the recipe.
