Akki Rotti

Akki rotti is very famous in Bangalore and most of the eat out has this for breakfast. Halli Thindi on Bull Temple Road is well known for Akki Rotti. Back in 2005 I used to work for Accenture and one of our team member used to get this akki rotti very often. We all used to wait for her to get this and hog it as if we haven't seen food for decades :). Thanks to her for sharing this simple tasty recipe.

1/2 cup finely chopped onion
3 finely chopped green chillies
chopped dill leaves
chopped cilantro
1 cup butter milk
1 tea spoon oil
1/4 tea spoon jeera
1/4 tea spoon while til or sesame seeds
butter or ghee to fry

Mix all the above ingredients and make a thick dough. The dough should be thinner than chapati dough but not as thin as dosa batter.
Spread this on a tava and fry it on simmer with ghee or butter.
Serve hot.

Serves: 2
Preparation Time: 35 mins

Frying Tips:
This should be spread with hand, so it becomes difficult to spread it on a hot tava. I usually cut a thick plastic bag and grease it with bit of oil, spread the dough on it and then put this on the tava and then remove the plastic. While you do this, you need to be really quick as the tava will be hot and plastic will melt with in seconds.

The tastier version is to fry this on banana leaves. Cut banana leaves into small square shapes, grease it with oil. Spread the dough and cover this with another cut banana leaf and fry it. This way rotti will get the aroma of the leaf.
