#ArisiRoti #Akkiroti : The dish #akkiroti is one of the favorite tiffin items of Karnataka. It is done with rice flour and dill leaves. The dill leaves ( fennel plant ) give a distinct flavour to #roti. If dill is not available coriander leaves can be used. The prepared dough has to be spread by hand. Usually for other roti dough is spread on a plantain leaf by hand and then transferred on to a hot tawa. But akki roti dough tends to break while transferring. So dough is spread on tawa itself and then cooked on medium flame. It is advisable to have two or three tawa to prepare akki roti. Some years back I have posted akki roti recipe prepared from cooked rice and rice flour.
