Akki (Rice) Roti

akki-roti

In school, we have been talking about Karnataka and the cuisine of Karnataka. In honour of my state, I am posting a recipe for akki (rice) roti. This is usually eaten for breakfast but I made it for dinner. It is quite simple to make and makes for a quick dinner. Most of the ingredients are usually in the pantry.

Makes six rotis. This can be made in 30 minutes.

Ingredients: 

rice flour 1 1/2 cups

chopped onions (1 cup)

chopped green chillies (1 tbsp) – increase or decrease depending on how spicy you would like

chopped cilantro (coriander leaves) – 2 tbsp

grated carrot – 2 tbsp

2 tbsp grated coconut (optional)

salt to taste

water (around 1 cup)

vegetable oil

parchment paper or plastic sheet

Directions:

Place all ingredients except water in a bowl.

Add water, little by little and knead to form a soft dough. Make balls.

On a parchment paper, add a tsp of oil, press gently with moist fingers to form a round roti

To a skillet, add a tsp of oil and gently place the roti on the skillet. (Be careful so that oil does not splatter on you). Make sure skillet in on medium.

After a minute, carefully flip the roti and cook on the other side. (Sometimes it may break up, but it still tastes good)

Serve with coconut chutney or tomato chutney. Goes well with a bowl of yoghurt too.

Enjoy!
