Mixed veg akki or rice flour rotti is a delicious breakfast recipe from state of Karnataka. Here I am updating the blog with one of my favourite breakfast with step by step video recipe. These rotti can be served even for evening snacks.
I simply adore the use of nutrition rich vegetables in this glutenfree akki rotti. Each of the ingredients I have used is rich in many nutrients. Purple cabbages and carrots is powerhouse of vitamin C and Vitamin K. Fresh coconut is rich in fat content and protein, rice flour is rich in carbohydrates. Zucchini is high in water and fibre content.
How to prepare vegetable akki roti
Akki roti recipe is the simplest and easiest recipe that requires no practice. Akki means rice, rotti is prepared using rice flour. Rice flour should be fine powder free of lumps.
Adding fresh raw vegetables makes it even more nutritious and fits well into healthy breakfast category. Any finely chopped or grated vegetables or greens of choice can be added.
The traditional akki or rice flour rotti is basically made of rice flour and water, mixed well and rotti is prepared by patting on the plantain or banana leaf. The other method is by patting the dough directly on the tawa.
If you feel the dough is dry, little water can be added. When adding vegetables and greens, always add double of these compared to rice flour. This makes the rotti soft.
These can be prepared by two ways to make them crispy or soft. Cripsy rotti is prepared without closing the lid while cooking on hot tawa. Or they can be made soft by using a lid while cooking.
Adding flavours to the rotti
Any Indian spices can be added to akki rotti like garam masala, red chilli powder or green chilies, chat masala, sambhar powder. I have added garam masala and cumin seeds to make it flavourful.
This akki roti can be served with butter, jaggery. Serving with sambhar and chutney is optional as the rotti is already flavoured with masala.
