Akki Roti (Karnataka Style) is very popular Karnataka Breakfast, can be served with any type of chutney or with chicken curry. It makes a very healthy and filling breakfast. I have made it in little different way to get a perfect round shape. This roti can be even cooked with raw rice flour but you need a bit of more hard work to roll the roti. This method will give you perfect round shape roti and it solves the purpose of eating akki roti..
1 cup rice flour
1 cup water
1/2 tsp cumin
1 large onion, 2 green chillies (finely chopped)
Hand full of chopped coriander leaves
2 tbsp grated coconut
Salt to taste.
Bring water to a rolling boil in a sauce pan. Add salt, oil and cumin, give a mix, then add rice flour, onion, green chilles, coriander, coconut and mix well until no lumps remain.
Turn the heat off. Cover the pan and set it aside for 5 minutes. Now knead the dough while its still hot, make it like a chapati dough.
Heat a tava on medium heat. Once heated, turn the heat to low.
Divide the dough into 2 inch balls and keep them covered under a damp cloth.
Spread some rice flour on the rolling board. Place a ball in the center and sprinkle more flour on top. Keep rolling the ball with the rolling pin into a round with even thickness.
Transfer onto the heated tava with the top surface up and cook the roti both the side. Apply little oil if needed on to both the side.
Follow the same method for the rest of them.
Serve hot with any Chutney or Chicken curry.
