Akki Roti

Akki Roti is made of Rice flour and is my daughter's favourite. It is a very healthy dish that can be served as breakfast or snack. They are crisp on the outside and slightly chewy on the inside.

  • 1 cup Rice Flour
  • 1/4 cup Dill Leaves chopped
  • 1 green chilli finely chopped
  • 1/4" piece ginger finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp Salt (Adjust to taste)
  • 1 Carrot grated
  • Water (as needed to make the dough)
  • Oil to cook the Akki rotis
  1. Mix all the ingredients except oil to form a dough.
  2. Divide the dough into small balls and heat a skillet.
  3. Apply some oil on the palms of your hands and take one of the dough balls flatten it on your palm.  Don't make it too thin. It can be a 1/4" thick.
  4. Place it on the skillet and apply oil on the roti.
  5. When it turns slightly golden brown at the bottom, flip it and add some more oil till the other side too turns golden brown. Cook it till it becomes crisp and golden brown on both sides by adding more oil if needed.
  6. Serve hot with pickle!

  1. If you don't have dill leaves, you may replace dill with 1/4 cup chopped cilantro and 1/4 tsp ajwain in this recipe for a different flavour and aroma.

Suggestions/ Notes
  1. My Akki Rotis are small, about the size of my palm as it is easy and less messy to make it that way. In case you want to make big Akki Rotis, take a Ziploc cover/ plastic sheet and rub it generously with oil and flatten the dough to make a big circle. Carefully peel it off the Ziploc sheet and place it on the skillet.
