Simple Akki Rotti and its Different Varieties

Avrekalu Rotti - Looks and tastes Yummy

Akki roti or Akki Rotti made from rice flour is a hot favorite South Indian Breakfast. It has gained importance owing to its multiple forms and its ability to metamorphose to satisfy everybody’s tastebuds. Little change in the ingredients changes the taste and it is not an exaggeration to say that I can eat this Rotti every day for breakfast.  There are many methods of cooking it and believe me all of them compete with each other in taste. Here I am giving the recipe for one method of making Akki rotti. Simple to cook, tasty to eat, fast to make – this is the short description for akki rotti, which is a form of gluten free bread.

Cooking Time: 15 minutes

Serves: 2 persons

Ingredients for Akki Rotti

  1. Finely ground rice flour – 1 Cup
  2. Onion – 1 Medium size
  3. Carrot – 1 small
  4. Green Chile – 3 Nos.
  5. Coconut grated – ½ cup
  6. Coriander leaves – finely chopped
  7. Jeera – 1 small spoon
  8. Salt to taste
  9. Oil to cook


Preparation of Akki Roti

Chop the onion into fine pieces. Grate carrot, cut green chilly into small pieces, preferably with a chili cutter.  Now mix onion, carrot, chilies, coconut, coriander leaves, jeera and salt, add rice flour to make a soft dough adding water in small quantities. Spread oil on a pan, then spread the dough to form a thin layer. Make holes in the layer with a spoon, add oil, put the pan on the stove and close with a lid. Open the lid after 2-3 minutes and cook on medium flame till the rotti turns crispy.

Ready to serve

Now the Akki rotti is ready to serve. Serve hot with ghee or butter and chutney (Different types of Chutney). You can end the breakfast by relishing this crispy rotti with curd.


1)      You can add vegetables like radish, cucumber, cabbage, methi leaves or anything of your choice to change the taste.

2)      Akki Rotti without any vegetables (only coconut and jeera) also tastes yummy.

3)      Onion is optional with vegetables.

4)      The best form of Rotti I relish is Avarekalu rotti.
