Method To Prepare
- Add grated carrots, finely chopped onion and coriander leaves, pepper powder and salt to the rice flour. Add water little by little and form a soft dough, the water quantity can vary a little. Use only as per need, the dough should not be watery.
- Once the dough is made, allow it to rest for 10-15 minutes
- Meanwhile, switch on the flame, place a pan and grease it well with ghee.
- Take an aluminum foil/parchment paper and grease it well oil. We need this to make flat akki rottis.
- Grease your hands well with oil/ghee. Take a small part of the dough and spread the rice dough lightly using your fingers. If the edges cracks, dip your finger in water and spread it thin/ thick as per your choice.
- Kids prefer thin akki rotti because of its crunchy nature.
- Once the pan is hot enough, lower the flame and lift the aluminum foil and reverse it on the hot tawa.
- Cook the base so that it gets firm. It will usually take 2-3 seconds. Now, gently remove the foil.
- Sprinkling some ghee/oil to prevent dryness of rottis and press gently.
- Cook the akki rottis evenly on both sides. You need to stop when you see light brown spots on the akki rotti. It usually takes 1-2 minutes each side in medium flame.
- Repeat the same procedure for rest of the akki roti dough.
- Serve the akki rotti with green chutney
- While preparing the akki rotti dough, avoid adding too much water. The consistency of the dough should be similar to chapati dough.
- Avoid making akki rotti too thick, since the dough needs time to cool. Sometimes, the rotti’s can remain half cook and trouble your tummy if they are too thick.
- Add different grated vegetables of your choice to make the akki rotti more nutritious and healthier.
- If you find the dough cracking while making akki rotti, seal the cracks using little water.
