5 stars for Masala Akki Rotti (Spicy Rice Flour Flatbread)

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 20 min
Ready in: 35 min
Yields: 5 rottis

Ingredients

  • 2 cups rice flour
  • 1 cup finely chopped onions
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped coriander leaves
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped curry leaves
  • 2 green chilies (not-so-hot variety), finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 cup grated coconut
  • 1/4 cup grated carrot
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • 5 teaspoons oil (1 teaspoon per rotti)

Instructions

  1. Add rice flour in a mixing bowl. Add all of the other ingredients (except for the oil). Mix. Knead, adding water little-by-little, to get a firm but pliable dough.
  2. Take a big lemon-sized portion of dough and form a ball. Place it on the center of a greased plastic sheet or banana leaf. Spread the dough evenly with greased fingers to make a moderately thin disc of about 6 inches in diameter (see photo for reference).
  3. Heat a griddle or pan and sprinkle a few drops of oil on it. Place the flatbread dough in the center. Add a few drops of oil on the top. Cook it on medium-low heat for 2 minutes. It should become golden on the bottom.
  4. Flip it and roast the other side for 2–3 minutes. Add a little oil on the top.
  5. Remove the flatbread and repeat the process to make additional rottis using the remaining dough.
  6. Serve with spicy chutney or pickle.

    Thanks for the comments. Unlike dosai, rice roti is made of a dough, not of a batter. This roti is a tasty breakfast dish. Salt you can adjust according to your taste.

    Yeah..Ashish. This masala roti is delicious. It actually doesn't need any side dish to eat with. It is spicy and tasty on its own. You can have a pickle or chutney as a side dish if you want.

    @Shaila,

    This Masala Roti looks delicious. I am sure it will go very well with any north Indian Vegetable Sabji.
