Roti or rotti literally means PANCAKE is refreshing my childhood memories, in fact as I type this post, my mind is recollecting rotti related incidents of my life. I have been grown up eating the healthy, vegan and oil free pancakes made up of Sorghum (Jowar) which are the staple food of Northern part of Karnataka.
Today I am not posting about roti that I have been eating for ages but the one that substituted my craving for the same, that is Akki Rotti. Yes, roti made from rice flour could satisfy my hunger pangs to some extent when I genuinely feel to eat jowar rotti. Sorghum (jowar) is a kind of cereal which is not readily available in all grocery stores of all places but RICE is. So rice roti took over and became part of my foodie life.
Akki rotti / roti is one such food that has fascinated me and I can live eating it alone, for days. The rotti/roti itself is very bland in taste but when we accompany it with spicy coconut chutney or stir fry, it’s amazingly delicious. Milky white akki rotti with beautiful brown spots and two soft layers are so very appetizing and as you dip a small piece in to red coconut chutney and gulp over… it’s heaven. I am drooling over as I type. So what next? Get ready to go in to the kitchen right away.
