I try to make food as healthy as possible. So, for the past several months instead of making just Akki/Rice Rotti, I am using other healthy flours like Jowar and Ragi. I usually mix equal portions of Jowar and Ragi and make rotti. The Ragi flour was over, and the weather prevented us to venture out to buy the same.
So, I mixed 2 cups of Jowar flour and 1/2 cup of Rice flour. The rotti turned amazingly soft, and unbelievably tasty. This is also healthy. Make sure you cook the rotti in low flame so patience is required for this rotti.
- 2 cups Jowar Flour
- 1/2 cup Rice Flour
- 1 large Cucumber or Onion or Carrot finely grated
- 6-8 green chillies finely chopped
- 1/4 cup fresh or frozen coconut ( I skipped)
- 8-10 sprigs cilantro leaves finely chopped
- 1 tsp jeera
- salt to taste
- Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl with water. The dough should not too watery. See pics above.
- In a cold pan or tava, add 1 tsp oil. Now take a tennis size ball of the dough and place in the center of the tava.
- With your palms, slowly start tapping the dough until it forms a thin circle around the tava.
- You can add water to your finger tips while doing this.
- Once the rotti is thin and evenly spread, turn the gas on and place this Tava.
- Let it cook in medium heat until all sides are done.
- Simultaneously on another stove, make the rotti on a bandale, pan.
- Reverse and cook for a minute or two.
- Serve with Chutney or pickle.It tastes crunchy, spicy and way too yumhealth.
P.S: After you finish making one rotti, the tava or pan has to washed in cold water so that you make another one. If the pan is hot, the dough sticks and you can’t make a thin rotti.
