How to make Masala Akki Roti Recipe - Spicy Rice Flour Flatbread
To begin making the Masala Akki Roti Recipe, in a large mixing bowl, add 4-5 tablespoons of warm water, onions, jaggery, cumin and asafoetida and leave for 5-8 mins.
Meanwhile sift the flour twice over. With very little water, grind the coconut, ginger, chillies to a coarse paste. Add the vegetables and grind again to a slightly runny paste (you should end up with approx. 1 cup of vegetable masala paste)
Add this masala paste, salt to the jaggery-cumin water in the bowl. Mix well, add the rice flour a little at a time and make a smooth dough (the water in the masala paste provides adequate moisture). Add little warm water if required.
Once dough comes to shape, adjust the salt and spice to suit your taste.
Add a layer of oil over the akki roti dough and keep aside. Cover and allow it to rest for 10-15 mins.
Wet a muslin cloth with water or grease a plantain leaf. Pat a large spoonful portion of the dough on the cloth or leaf to make circular discs as you would do for a roti.
Make a small hole in the center for even cooking of the akki roti.
Preheat a skillet over medium heat and grease the skillet.
Carefully invert the akki roti onto the skillet and peel out the cloth or the leaf.
Cook the Masala Akki Roti on medium to low heat. Drizzle a teaspoon of oil around the roti and cook it on both sides until brown spots appear.
Once done, remove from heat and serve warm.
“People who love to eat are always the best people.” – Julia Child . I believe in this completely. Eating healthy (Egg free and completely vegetarian) is a way of life at home and having a foodie spouse who loves to cook and create new dishes also helps :) Clean flavours, seasonal foods, sugar free / fat free /low cal recipes and processed-food free diets rule the roost at my kitchen :) My family gives me the best feedback to my cooking, and watching them tuck into a healthy plate gives me inspiration to cook on..
