Hello Foodies

Akki Rotti (Kannada) literally meaning ‘rice bread’ is a popular breakfast dish of Karnataka. This healthy, delicious , vegan rotti is made using rice flour and has several variations. The basic akki rotti can be made with rice flour, chopped green chilies, coconut and onion. But this masala akki rotti is made by adding veggies and greens to the basic rotti. The rotti can be relished as is without any accompaniments but you can also enjoy it with a dash of butter , ghee , chutney or pickle.


Being a picky eater myself during childhood I never liked Akki rottis (or any rotti for that matter) But this vacation when Amma made these yummy masala rottis I thoroughly enjoyed eating them. And needless to say Amma was too happy. To my surprise both my kiddos polished their plates without any fuss as well. I recreated them a couple of times after returning back and devoured the yummy rottis.

The beauty about these rottis is that you can get creative and add any veggies and greens that you and your kids love. Its a great way to sneak in those daily servings of vegetables to your kids meal.The addition of hithikida bele (peeled hyacinth beans) adds an extraordinary taste to the rottis. But you can skip them if they are not in season. You can also add dill leaves, methi leaves to make them more flavorful.

Do try the delicious masala akki rotti and enjoy with your loved ones. Lets hop on to the recipe now.
