Akki Rotti or Rice Roti With a Spicy Eggplant Curry

Indulge in a Heavenly Combination

Rice rotis are very soft and fluffy. They have a nice aroma. As they are bland, you have to eat them with a spicy curry or chutney. The best companion for rice roti is eggplant curry or badane kai ennegai.

Let me show you how to make rice roti. I believe, making these is tricky for beginners. But, don't worry, you'll be an expert in no time.

To start making rotis, boil some water in a vessel. Add rice flour and some salt. Simmer for 2-3 minutes. Stir the flour with water. Turn off the fire. Keep this vessel covered for 10 minutes. During resting, the flour absorbs moisture and becomes soft. Now knead the flour very nicely, till you get a smooth and non-sticky dough. This fine kneading may take about 10 minutes.

Further, heat a pan for cooking the rotis. Pinch out a lemon size dough and knead it once again. Make a round flat shape. Dip it in rice flour and spray some flour on both sides of the ball. Roll it to make a moderate thin dice of about 6-7 inch diameter. Place the raw roti on the hot pan. Flip it once you see bubbles on top. Let the other side also cook for a minute. Remove and cook the roti directly on fire. The roti puffs up. Keep aside. Make all rotis like this and store them in a covered pot or in a casserole when they are not so hot. Rice rotis are soft and flavorful. Serve 2-3 of them with a spicy egg plant curry or with a spicy chutney. Enjoy the taste!

Step-By-Step Instructions and Images for Making Rice Roti or Akki Rotti

  1. Boil 4 cups of water and some salt in a wide vessel. Add rice flour into it. Don't cover the vessel. Let the contents boil for 2-3 minutes. Now, stir the mix. There may be lumps formed in the mix. No worries. Cover and leave it for 10 minutes.
  2. During resting time, the flour absorbs moisture and becomes soft. Knead the dough constantly till you get a smooth and non-sticky dough. If you need some water for kneading, use only hot water. Fine kneading the dough may take about 10 minutes. Keep it covered for a while.
  3. Pinch out a big lemon size dough. Knead it once again and make a ball shape. Flatten it. Dip this patty in rice flour. Spread some rice flour on the rolling board. Sprinkle some rice flour on the patty. Gently roll the dough to get a disc of about 6-7 inch diameter.
  4. Heat a flat pan for cooking rotis. Place the disc on it. Cook till bubbles form on he top. Flip it. Let the other side also get a few golden spots. Hold the disc in a spatula and cook it directly on the flame. In no time the roti puffs up. Cook both sides. Rice roti is ready to serve.
  5. Make all the rotis like this and store in a casserole. These rotis remain soft even when they are cold. Serve 2-3 of them in a plate with a spicy eggplant curry or badane kai ennegai. Enjoy eating this heavenly combination meal!

      Thanks sir. Par boiling the flour in water and kneading the dough nicely are the two important steps to make proper rice rotis. Otherwise, roti breaks while rolling. Making proper rice roti needs some practice.

      Very interesting recipe. It's similar to the wheat roti except that the flour is cooked before making the dough with it whereas the wheat flour is made dough directly with raw flour by mixing the water little by little.
