Rice Flour Flat Bread – Akki Roti Recipe
Happy Friday to all my readers! It’s back to basics in my kitchen and I am sharing an authentic South Indian Rice delicacy. Its called Akki Roti (Translation: Rice Bread) in the local dialect. All it is is a crispy rice dosa with a healthy serving of garden fresh vegetables. It is really up to you to make it crispy or soft & chewy, but you definitely get the goodness from carrot, ginger and dill leaves in a breakfast recipe. Not many breakfast recipes can claim that!
How to make Akki roti
The recipe is fairly easy to prepare. It took less than an hour to prepare it from scratch. Like most South Indian recipes, this dish will need coconuts. I used coconut flour, but you could also use grated coconut or coconut flakes instead.
Just be sure to grind them to a fine consistency before you mix it. If you are using coconut milk or coconut cream, you will have to adjust the quantity of water that you add to maintain the consistency. Check my video if you have any questions. Apart from coconuts, the choice of vegetables is really up to you. I chose to go with grated carrots, ginger, dill leaves, and green chilies. Other choices are broccoli, radish, and cilantro leaves.
Try your version today and let me know how it turns out. This crispy rice dosa recipe pairs well with coconut chutney. Check out my recipes for Carrot Chutney or Green Tomato Chutney. One word of caution is that rice flour is inherently dry in nature and it is normal to have a few imperfections on the dosa, when you roll them.
Is Akki roti healthy?
Absolutely! All the vegetable and spices that you add makes the dish not only tasty but also healthy. A serving size of 2 rotis with chutney can be a fulfilling and healthy breakfast 🙂
