Rice flour roti

Akki Roti is a popular breakfast dish from Karnataka. Akki in Kannada means rice and this roti is made using rice flour, chopped vegetables and spices. Akki Roti is generally served with a spicy chutney. This  healthy roti is quite filling and keeps you full  for a long time.  I have used onions, carrots and coriander leaves to make this roti, but you can add other vegetables like cucumber, cabbage, bottle gourd etc.  Here’s the recipe:


1 cup rice flour (chawal ka atta)
1 large onion, finely chopped (pyaaz)
1 cup grated carrots (gaajar)
½ cup chopped coriander leaves (hara dhaniya)
2 green chillies, finely chopped (hari mirch)
1 tbsp cumin seeds (jeera)
Few curry leaves, chopped (kadi patta)
1 tbsp oil (tel)
Salt as per taste (namak)

Oil to cook the rotis (around 1 tsp oil per roti)
