Akki roti or Akki Rotti made from rice flour is a hot favorite South Indian Breakfast. It has gained importance owing to its multiple forms and its ability to metamorphose to satisfy everybody’s tastebuds. Little change in the ingredients changes the taste and it is not an exaggeration to say that I can eat Akki Rotti everyday for breakfast.  There are many methods of cooking it and believe me all of them compete with each other in taste. Here I am giving the recipe for one method of making Akki rotti. Simple to cook, tasty to eat, fast to make – this is the short description for akki rotti, which is a form of gluten free bread.

Cooking Time : 15 minutes

Serves : 2 persons

Ingredients

  1. Finely ground rice flour – 1 Cup
  2. Onion – 1 Medium size
  3. Carrot – 1 small
  4. Green Chillie – 3 Nos.
  5. Coconut grated – ½ cup
  6. Coriander leaves – finely chopped
  7. Jeera – 1 small spoon
  8. Salt to taste

Preparation

Chop the onion into fine pieces. Grate carrot, cut green chilly into small pieces, preferably with a chili cutter.  Now mix onion, carrot, chilies, coconut, coriander leaves, jeera and salt, add rice flour to make a dough adding water in small quantities. Spread oil on a pan, then spread the dough to form a thin layer. Make holes in the layer with a spoon, add oil, put the pan on the stove and close with a lid. Open the lid after 2-3 minutes and cook till the rotti turns crispy.

Ready to serve

Now the Akki rotti is ready to serve. Serve hot with ghee or butter and chutney (Different types of Chutney). You can end the breakfast by relishing akki rotti with curd.

Variants

1)      You can add vegetables like radish, cucumber, cabbage, methi leaves or anything of your choice to change the taste.

2)      Akki Rotti without any vegetables (only coconut and jeera) also tastes yummy.

3)      Onion is optional with vegetables.

4)      The best form of Rotti I relish is Avarekalu rotti.
