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 roti, I personally prefer plantain leaves. So when I plan to make akki roti, 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.

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.

5. Mix everything very well. Cover and keep aside for 20 to 30 minutes. By this time the onions and dill leaves will release water in the mixture and so you can add water accordingly.

6. Later add water in parts and begin to mix and knead into a dough. I have used ⅔ cup water. Do add water as required depending on the quality of rice flour.

3. Then heat the tawa on medium flame and begin to cook the akki rotti. Proceed as mentioned in the above steps. Prepare akki roti using the method which suits you. this second method takes longer as you have to wait for the tawa to cool down. So you can keep two tawas side by side and prepare akki roti. When cooking on one tawa is done, switch it off and then use the second tawa. This way alternate between the two tawas while making akki roti.

  1. Mrs Amit i whole heartedly thank u for producing us such a fantastic app here with varieties of dishes and ideas..Thanks a lot and i just want to know whether there would be any differences in taste if the rotti isn’t kept in Banana leaf and should v use separate banana lead for each rotti?

    1. thanks amna. there is not any difference in taste as the roti is not cooked in the banana leaf. a mild banana flavor will be there but it not noticeable. i have used the same banana leaf for making the rotis. you can even use around 2 banana leaves.
