Carrot Akki Roti

Planning a breakfast everyday is a daunting task. When I plan the menu for a full work week I always try to include wholesome breakfasts. Almost every other week I try to make Karnataka special soft akki rotis. Akki rotis are made with rice flour mixed with some simple spices, green chillis, chopped coriander and grated coconut. Along with that any vegetables are added, like grated carrots, chopped onions, grated cucumber, grated lauki. Here I have explained step by step recipe for carrot akki roti.

Rice flour rotis are made in a different way compared to whole wheat flour rotis. They are lighter and are also gluten free (skip hing/asafoetida). It is a welcome change from regular rotis. Carrot akki roti turn out really tasty, soft with correct balance of spices and carrots impart sweet notes.
The trick to make soft akki rotis is to pour some boiling water to activate the flour. Grated coconut also is an essential ingredient for making soft akki roti. Also try steamed akki roti, baalekayi akki roti from FOI. Carrot akki roti tastes best with shenga chutney pudi or chutneys.
