Akki rotti is made from rice flour (akki means rice in Kannada) and is a popular breakfast dish in karnataka. It is not as glamorous as idlis, dosa and vadas, but is a good, hearty breakfast.
Rice flour- 3 cups
Onion- 1 finely chopped
Green chillies (jalapenos) – 6 to 7 chopped
Coriander (cilantro) – 3 to 4 strands chopped
Salt- to taste
Mix rice flour, onions, green chillies, coriander, cumin and salt, with water. Add sufficient amount of water until all the ingredients come together and form a lump. You can always sprinkle extra water while spreading on the skillet if the mixture is too dry.
Spread 1 tsp of oil on skillet, take a handful of dough and spread it on the skillet tapping with your fingers clockwise. Spread it to 1/4th inch thickness or even less if you want it to be crispy. Add a little oil on the sides and cook on medium heat. Make sure you cover it with a lid so it gets cooked well. Flip it on the other side and cook until golden brown or crispy.
Serve it with chutney. I personally like to have it with yogurt and mango pickle.
