Koyya Rotti | Akki Roti

These days our breakfast has become too healthy, we have a glass of juice & one bread slice or two. I went a little ahead and replaced my rice bowl with keenwah & we replaced our dinner with breakfast one's in order to maintain good healthy diet. 
Akki roti is one of those one's I love & enjoy the most in my breakfast's. I tasted & learned it from my mom. Not to mention that it was one of those dishes I had from my childhood. My mom calls it as" Koyya Rotti " & the recipe follows.

2 Cups of rice flour
1/2 cup channa dal ( soak them for 1hr)
1 Cup chopped onion
1 Cup grated carrot 
1/2 Cup finely chopped corriander leaves
4 green chili's
2 Tbs jeera
1/4 Cup coriander finely chopped 
2 Tbs olive oil

Heat some water & bring it to boil.Take bowl & mix all the ingredients in it. Add boiled water little by little to the rice mixture & mix it to a thick dough.
Now take a big ball of dough 

Take a parchment paper or foil & apply oil to it. Now take the dough & spread it as shown in the pic & slowly slip it in to the pan.

 You can also heat a pan with oil & just spread the dough as shown above. Close pan with a lid. After few mins remove the lid and reverse the roti. Cook till it's crisp.Repeat it with rest of the dough & serve it hot with chutney.

While spreading the dough in pan wet your hands to press the dough so that it won't stick to your hands or you can even take oil in place of water but I'm concerned about too much of oil.


  1. akki rotti is my fav , anyday :-) adding channa dal to it is very new to me ! a tip that might of some use - add a TBSP or two of fresh grated coconut while making the dough, it prevents breaking.

    nice recipe :-)
