My mum is an expert in making Arisi roti / Akki roti. This recipe is entirely her’s and I was just watching her prepare this . How  I wish to make one ? I shall definitely make one , right now I’m sharing the recipe here with you.

200 grams Rice flour
3 chopped onions
6 green chilly
handful grated coconut
2 tbsps cumin seeds

  1. Finely chop the onions and green chillies.
  2. Put this in a mixing bowl , add grated coconut , salt and cumin seeds.
  3. To this add the rice flour and mix them evenly with your hand.
  4. Add water little by little and mix them like a chappathi dough. It should look like the one shown in the picture.
  5. Take an iron griddle and keep it on medium heat. Once it gets heated up , take a small portion of the dough mixture and directly spread it on the hot griddle.
  6. Care must be taken while spreading it out , wet your hand with water and extend its ends , then you’ll be able to spread the dough.
  7. The size of the roti depends on the amount of dough you take. Here my mother has made medium sized akki roties.
  8. Make a small hole in the middle and add oil around its edges. Let it fry for about 2 minutes in medium heat , then flip it to the other side.
  9. Serve this hot with any pickle of your choice. This makes for a great tea time snack.
