Akki Rotti / ಅಕ್ಕಿ ರೊಟ್ಟಿ

ಕನ್ನಡದಲ್ಲಿ ಓದಲು ಇಲ್ಲಿ ಕ್ಲಿಕ್ ಮಾಡಿ.

Here is a recipe which I learnt from my Mother-in-law. She also likes a lot and prepares it for breakfast at-least once in two weeks. Of course she uses only the the grated cucumber, but I normally use potato and carrot in addition to this. Try this recipe, and I am sure, you will like it :)


Ingredients:
Rice Flour - around 2 cups
Medium size cucumber - 2
Potato - 1
Carrot - 1
Medium size onion - 2
Green chillies 4 - 5
Chopped curry leaves
Salt as per taste
Oil or butter

Procedure:
To start with, grate all the vegetables, finely chop the onion and chillies.
Mix the above things with chopped curry leaves and salt. Then, add the rice flour and mix well.
The dough should be bit watery only. Else, Rotti will become hard. If it looks dry, add little curd.


Let it rest for 20 minutes and then, heat tava, put the batter directly on the tava and spread thinly with your hands into round rottis. Else, you can prepare the rotti on the banana leaf and put it on the tava.
Apply some butter or oil once you put it on the tava. 
When you see golden brown spots on both the sides, take it out and serve with butter.
Akki Rotti will be even more tasty when you keep them on the tava for more time under medium / low heat.

Tips:
  • If you can get banana leaves, use them to pat the rottis. Banana leaves will add a nice aroma to the rottis and also, you can make the rottis more thin.
