Akki Roti is an all-time favourite snack in traditional Kannada households, where it is made for breakfast or evening tiffin.

It is a quick and easy recipe, which does not require grinding or fermenting any batters. A soft dough of rice flour, perked up with veggies, ginger, green chillies and crushed cumin, is flattened deftly on a hot tava and cooked till it is an appetizing golden brown in colour.

Speckled with grated carrot and chopped coriander, the rotis look really tempting, and taste equally so! It can be enjoyed with grated coconut mixed with jaggery, or with coconut chutney and sambhar .

Be careful when flattening the dough on the hot tava with wet hands as the hot steam might hurt you. Once you get the hang of it, it gets easier. Also, make sure you cook the rotis as soon as the dough is made, as the dough will get stiff and dry after some time.

You can also have a go at other South Indian specialties like Onion Tomato Rava Uttapa or Neer Dosa .
