Akki roti - Rice pan cake!!!

Courtesy: Raman, kalakad

Akki Rotti (Kannada: ಅಕ್ಕಿ ರೊಟ್ಟಿ) is a rice-based breakfast item unique to the state of Karnataka, India but extremely popular. Akki-Rotti means rice-pancake in the native language, Kannada. It is made of rice flour which is mixed with salt and water and kneaded well to make a soft dough. Sliced onions and carrots, chopped coriander, cumin seeds and sesame seeds can also be added while kneading the dough. Oil is spread over a griddle (tava) or wok and a small amount of the dough is neatly spread over it to resemble a thin pancake (rotti). A small amount of oil is spread over it and the griddle is placed over heat till the rotti turns golden brown. Akki Rotti is served hot and is eaten along with chutney. A dash of butter or ghee with Akki Rotti is also preferred. Another way of making Akki Rotti is to spread the dough over a plantain leaf and then cook it over the griddle with the plantain leaf on the top.

Akki Roti is a popular breakfast dish and evening snack in Karnataka


Mix flour and grated carrot with water. Knead the mixture into the consistency of that of chappati dough. Grind coconut and green chilli and add to the dough. Make small balls and flatten them with your palm. Do not use a chappati maker or a rolling pin for this. Cook the rotis like you would chappatis on an oiled tava. Serve hot with chutney or raita. Sliced onions and bottlegourd, chopped coriander, cumin seeds and sesame seeds can also be added while kneading the dough.
