Akki Rotti/Rice Rotti
Akki Rotti or Rice rotti is a traditional breakfast iteam in Karnataka.Back home we freshly ground the rice flour and made rottis which had a unique and wonderful taste.This is one of my favourite dishes and I hope you all enjoy this recipe.
Rice flour-2 cups
Chopped onions- 2 Nos
Green chillies-3-4 chopped
Grated Coconut-2 tbsp
Chopped coriander leaves-1 tbsp
Cumin seeds-1 tsp
Curry leaves-Chopped 4-5
Salt to taste
Curd(optional)2 tbsp(If you want rotti to be soft)
Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl,add water little by little and make a soft dough.Pour 1 tbsp of oil on the Tava/griddle.Take a small ball of the rice dough,put it in middle of tava over the oil and gently press on the dough from the center spread the dough uniformly till the edge of the tava.Make small holes(4-5)and pour oil in the holes and around the edges of the rotti also.
Place the tava on the stove and cook on medium heat and keep turning the tava to get a uniform golden brown color to the whole rotti.You can make it crisp or soft according to your taste.To make it soft cover the tava with a lid.
Follow the same procedure with the remaining dough.
Serve hot with any type of Chutney or chutney pudi or curd with a piece of butter on the top will make it even more TASTY
You can also make akki rottis with Methi and onion mixed,Avarekai(also know as surti papdi lilva)(tender) and onion.
