Akki Roti, a soft-n-crispy flatbread made with rice flour, grated carrot, onion and basic Indian spices, is one of the best ways to start your day. It is very popular in Karnataka where Akki means rice in Kannada and hence it is known as Akki Roti (Rice Roti). It is very easy to prepare and takes only 15-20 minutes – first a soft dough is prepared by mixing rice flour with vegetables, spices and water, flattened into thin round shaped disc, and cooked on tawa until crisp and light brown. Traditional preparation of this Rice Roti requires flattening the dough directly on hot tawa. However, it is a difficult process and has risk of burning your fingers accidentally. This Akki Roti Recipe uses an innovative Parchment Paper technique that allows you to roll dough into roti off of tawa and then place it directly on tawa without struggling with dough’s stickiness; thus making an entire cooking process easy and non-messy.
