Akki Rotti is a kannada delicacy. It takes about 30 mins to make these.


Rice Flour: 4 cups
Poha/Avalakki/Aval (Soaked in water for about 15 mins): 1 Cup
Green Chillies: 7 nos.
Chopped Onion: 1 1/2 cup
Chopped Corriander: 1/4 cup
Cumin seeds (Jeera): 1 tsp (Optional)
Grated carrot: 1/2 cup (Optional)
Salt & Water: as required
Oil: 1 tblsp


Mix together all the ingredients. Add water and make dough with a consistency softer than the dough for chapathi. Use of poha makes the rotti soft on the inside but still crispy on the outside.
Pat them onto a greased tava or kadai and place on stove. Cook on medium flame, covered with a lid.
A variation in this is with cooked avarekaLu (mochai) and coconut instead of the onions and carrot.
I love to have these plain without any side dishes. However, the best side dish for these rottis is badnekai ennegai (enne kathrikka) a dish made with eggplants.
Will post the recipe for that soon.
Ciao till then...Have fun! Vidya.
