Akki rotti (rice flour Indian bread) needs no introduction for Kannadigas (people who belong to Karnataka). I feel, there are more versions of akki rotti than the number of districts in Karnataka!!
My granny keeps reminding me of my childhood days & keeps saying that you used to love eating akki rotti when you were toddler. We were scared to give you because you didnot have much teeth, but you enjoyed eating :))
Now.., my mom can proudly say the same thing to my son. My son started eating akki rotti when we were giving him mashed rice. He used to love akki rotti, cant blame him, it is in his genes ;)
Here is the akki rotti filled with nutrients:
- 2 cups rice flour
- 1 cup nugge soppu/drumstick leaves
- 1/2 cup grated coconut
- 1 onion finely chopped
- 1 tsp jeera
- 1 handful of cooked rice/leftover rice (optional, this makes the rotti soft)
- salt according to taste
- Wash the drumstick leaves & add all the ingredients listed above to a large bowl.
- Add enough water & make a dough out of it. (The dough should be softer than the normal chapathi atta).
- Take a greased paper/banana leaf or directly pat it on a tawa & cook on both sides.
- Akki rotti s ready to be served. Serve it with ghee/butter, chutneypudi or chutney.
