Akki Roti - Reader's Choice

Photobucket


Did you all know 4th Sense Cooking has a Facebook Page!! :) Yup, here is the link - https://www.facebook.com/pages/4th-Sense-Cooking/112258548818620 

There are 1000+ fans who make it happen (absolutely humbled and happy). Its so magical to get in touch with the readers and makes me feel so excited that I have so many friends who really try my recipes :)    

Last month while I was going through my repository of images, I found some interesting pictures of herbs and  spices. Bling!! Posted one of them and asked my buddies to guess the spice and there were answers pouring in and most of them were right. It was the cocoa bean that I posted :) I had announced that one lucky winner would be able to see their recipe here on my blog and so is this mighty Akki Roti :) 

There are contests coming up every month. So just go ahead, like my page and participate to win exciting prizes. :)

Drum roll... Kirthana Aditya was the random winner of that contest and she was sweet enough to contribute the recipe for Akki roti - Karnataka styled recipe to me as soon as I mailed her. Here are few lines from her - 

I am Kirthana Aditya. Have been married for 6 years and that's my real length of experience in cooking as well!

So, why am I interested in cooking? Well, my mother in law is a great cook, I have learnt most of my cooking from her. The second reason is my husband (PS: fed by my mil for 25 years!); whether he can cook or not is never contested, but he is a great food critic. So, with no other option in sight, I became interested in cooking well. Now, following my husband's footsteps is my son, Sriram, who is hardly 6, and can perfectly figure out what's wrong in the dish! My sister is my partner-in-crime. We cook together watching cookery videos on YouTube! 

Today, it has become a passion and now, it's like, I love to cook new dishes and recipes. I constantly search for different recipes on the web and try them out. One such search result is 4th sense cooking, simple and easy-to-do recipes with ingredients at home. I even hold a copy of the 4th sense recipe book.           

Thank you so much Kirthana for introducing a delicious recipe to me and my readers. :)

Step 7: Add salt. 

Step 8: Heat 2 cups of water until it is warm. Now add the water little by little to dough and mix well until everything comes together into a soft and spreadable dough.

Step 9: Leave the dough closed for half an hour. 

Step 10: Take a plastic sheet and grease it with some oil. Pinch a large ball of dough and place it on the sheet and pat it until it is an evenly spread circle of 1/2 inch thickness.

Step 11: Place the sheet down side on a well greased pan and remove the sheet carefully leaving the akki roti on the pan. 

Note: You can pat the dough into a thin circle directly on the pan too. But see to that you have atleast two pans to alternate and use so that one becomes cool enough to handle while the other is on the stove. 

Step 12: Pour few drops of oil and roast on both the sides.

Serve the hot akki roti with jaggery, sugar or chutney of your choice.

Hi, I was wondering if this could be made with wheat flour as well? Just thought it would make it more healthy. Would it be possible or would it be too hard?
