I was first introduced to this Karnataka based “Aki Roti” by my MIL.She prepared it in a jiffy.That was the first time I came to know about this recipe.I have not tried this for long time.All of a sudden I wanted to give it a try and Voila I made it :)
|Rice flour||1 cup|
|Green chilies finely chopped||1 tsp|
|Curry leaves finely chopped||a sprig|
|Coriander leaves finely chopped||1 tsp|
|Cumin seeds||1/2 tsp|
|Grated carrot(optional)||1 tsp |
|Water||as required for kneading|
1.Take a wide vessel and add rice flour,chopped green chilies,coriander leaves,curry leaves,cumin seeds and gated carrot,cabbage,coconut(I did not add carrot cabbage and coconut).
2.Form a dough and the consistency is similar to chapathi dough.You must be able to pinch a ball out of it.
3.Take a banana leaf and smear generous oil in it.
4.Smear oil in your hands and make a ball of dough and put it in the banana leaf.Pat the dough into a round shape or near to round shape with your hands as shown below.
5.Take a griddle and heat it.
6.Carefully invert the banana leaf into the griddle so that the roti sits on the griddle.
7.Drizzle oil around the roti and wait till both the sides of the roti cooks and becomes little golden color.
8.Serve it hot with raitha/pickle/chutney.
1.You can add your own grated veggies to the roti and make it still more delicious.
