  • 1 cup Rice flour
  • ¼ cup Carrot grated
  • ¼ cup Onion grated
  • 4 Green chili finely chopped
  • 2 tsp Ginger finely grated
  • ½ cup Cilantro finely chopped
  • 1 tsp Cumin seeds
  • to taste Salt
  • as needed Water
  • 4 tsp Oil


  • In a large mixing bowl, measure the rice flour. Add the rest of the ingredients in the bowl (except oil and water) and mix everything well.
  • Slowly sprinkle water and mix everything to form a soft dough. Make sure the dough is soft and smooth.
  • Heat a cast iron pan or any flat pan to cook the Akki Roti.
  • We can pat the dough directly over the hot pan to make it into a flat roti. I shaped mine on a parchment sheet and then placed it on the hot tawa to cook. We could also use banana leaf or aluminum foil to shape the roti. Do not use plastic sheet as we will be laying the shaped roti along with the sheet on the hot pan.
  • Divide the dough into 4. Place one of the piece on a parchment sheet and using wet hands, shape the dough into a thin flat roti.
  • Slowly lift the shaped roti along with the parchment and flip it and place it on the hot pan.
  • Slowly peel back the parchment paper and poke few holes on the roti.
  • Drizzle about 1 tsp of oil around the roti and let it cook on one side. Carefully flip the Akki Roti and cook it on the other side.
  • Remove it from heat and serve warm with spicy chutney.
