Coorg Style Akki Roti (with cooked rice & rice flour)

Coorg Style Akki Roti (with cooked rice, rice flour)

Tasty rotis without oil. Best with spicy gravy dishes.

Makes: 4 - 5

Please use same measuring cup to measure cooked rice and rice flour.


1 cup (200 g) cooked and cooled rice

2 tablespoon Nirapara / Double Horse appam / idiyappam flour (podi). Please do not use use normal rice flour. I'm not sure special rice flour available in Coorg for making akki roti.

½ teaspoon salt


Make a fine paste of cooked rice in a small mixer bowl (no need to add water).

In a wide bowl, mix cooked rice paste, rice flour and salt and make a soft dough without adding water. Adjust only with rice flour or rice paste.

Divide this dough into 4 - 5 equal balls and roll out into very thin akki roti of 5 – 6 inches in diameter( just like chapati / puri ). Sprinkle rice flour generously when making roti. You can cut the edges of the roti with the help of an inverted lid to get exact round shape.

Heat a flat tawa / dosa tawa. Place rolled out roti on it and cook for 40 seconds to 1 minute. Flip the other side and cook for about another 1 minute. It will puff within 1 - 2 minute. Cook until light golden spots on both the sides. See this photo. Do not apply oil or ghee.

Serve with veg or non - vegetarian dishes of your choice.
