Akki Rotti - A south Indian flat bread.

 I don't know about others but am addicted to akki rotti, have had it for bfast , lunch and a snack and yes all in one day. :) :) ( sheepish ) Those of you who are familiar with this crunchy, spicy n savory flat bread from Karnataka will agree with me - there is NO way you can stop after one ....one meal that is !! For the others you got to try it to know what am talking about. Love it in the cold winter months with a cup of filter coffee.

Had a friend over last week, we were planning to go out for lunch - till she complained that she has not tasted anything from my blog for ages,  well had to whip up something fast. After throwing a few names of dishes, without hesitation she picked akki rotti ......so akki rotti it is ..........hot coffee, chit chat, hot steaming savory flat bread . No place like home and nothing like home made !!

You will need

rice flour - 2-3 cups
red onions - 1 big finely chopped
bunch of fenugreek leaves finely chopped and steamed
cumin - 1 tbsp
green chilies 4-5 or as per taste - i like mine spicy
dessicated coconut 1/4 cup
cilantro small bunch finely chopped
salt to taste

 Mix all the above with water till you form a smooth dough, everything except the oil. In a shallow preferably round pan - which is COLD pour 1 tsp oil, take a round ball of the dough ( tennis ball size) using your fingers pat the dough on the pan evenly till it covers the surface area of the pan, make sure it is thin and even. Now turn on the heat on high and close the pan for 2 min, open the pan and make sure the bread is cooked nice and crunchy, turn - leave for a min or so. Serve with butter and chatni pudi  or just plain butter and don't forget the hot coffee!!

When you make the next rotti make sure you wash the pan with cold running water, so the pan is cold and you don't burn your fingers while patting the dough.
