akki roti recipe with step by step pics – akki roti is one of the staple breakfast in karnataka. akki means rice and roti means flat bread. so basically these are flat breads made with rice flour and mix veggies.

making akki roti does require some practice. the proportion of water to the flour should be correct. less water and the roti becomes dense. more water and the dough becomes thick batter like. so a fine balance is needed.

also these akki rotis are not rolled, but the dough is patted with hands. a plantain leaf makes this job pretty easy, but even a zip lock bag or moist cotton napkin or butter paper or parchment paper can be used. for making akki rotis, i personally prefer plantain leaves. so when i plan to make akki rotis, i get a few plantain leaves from the market.

in the step by step post, i have shown two methods of patting the dough. you can choose the method what you find easy. some more healthy flat breads which i have already shared are:

  1. jowar roti
  2. bajra roti
  3. missi roti
  4. makki ki roti
  5. kuttu ki roti
  6. rajgira paratha

akki rotti makes for a good healthy breakfast. you can add veggies of your choice in the dough. the recipe can also be halved. this karnataka akki rotti can be served with coconut chutney.
