Rice Rotis or Akki Vottis

The Akki Votti or the Rice roti is the healthiest option of roti or Indian bread like the Phulkas. It is an all time favourite at breakfast and dinner time in Coorg.

Now make balls of this mixture as shown and roll it out into rotis. If you find the edges to be uneven, you can use a round cutter to cut the edges (a round lid could come in handy!).

    • Sure Mr. Bhatia.

      This is a recipe from Coorg and is called Akki Votti and not Roti. The Akki Roti is a different preparation from Karnataka.
      Do send me the link to the page where you intend using the picture.
