The word ‘RoTTi’ (ರೊಟ್ಟಿ ), one might get confused that it is North Indian ‘Roti'(ರೋಟಿ ), which it is not, even though both could be categorized under Indian breads and both could serve for lunch and dinner both, there is an entire change in the recipe between the 2 dishes..
Recipe for Akki RoTTi is as follows.
Ingredients needed :-
Rice Flour ಅಕ್ಕಿ ಹಿಟ್ಟು – 1 cup
Cumin ಜೀರಿಗೆ- 1/2 tspn
Coriander leaves ಕೊತ್ತಂಬರಿ ಸೊಪ್ಪು- 1/4 cup finely chopped
Curry leaves ಕರಿಬೇವು- 1 sprig finely chopped
Onions finely chopped ಈರುಳ್ಳಿ- 1 big or 2 or 3 small ones
Green Chillies ಹಸಿರು ಮೆಣಸಿನಕಾಯಿ- 4 to 5 chopped finely
Salt ಉಪ್ಪು- 1.5 tsp
Coconut powder/gratings ಕಾಯಿ ತುರಿ – 1/4 cup
Refined oil ಅಡುಗೆ ಎಣ್ಣೆ – 1 cup
 In a mixing bowl, put Rice Flour, Jeera, Coriander leaves, Curry leaves,Onions, Green chillies, salt , coconut powder…
 Add water and mix consistently similar to a dough or rather little soft dough than that of a chapathi.
 Make small balls can make big orange sized balls if making in a big griddle or big lemon sized ball if making in small griddle ( ಬಾಣಲೆ)
 Now take a ball and put in in the centre of griddle and pat with fingers and make a big circle ( ರೊಟ್ಟಿಯನ್ನು ತಟ್ಟುವುದು).
 If we pat it thin, it gets crispy,else if thick it gets soft.. Pat it as per the taste, crispy or soft according to preference and make small holes in between for the oil to make the roTTi crispier…
Roast well on both the sides, remove to a plate when medium hot.
 Serve with Chutney or Chutney puDi or even tomato ketchup which kids prefer.
For Variations to above mentioned Akki RoTTi recipe :
* My mother makes by adding grated carrot and also cucumber which tastes as delicious too.
* Some people make in another way, that is by adding rice flour and salt to the boiling water and later tapping on the tawa or baaNale.. But in our home we usually follow the above mentioned method..
