Akki Roti ( Rice Roti )

Akki Roti is one of the unique breakfast dish in the state of Karnataka , India. Akki means Rice in Kannada. My Mom used to make this for evening tiffin usually. I never made this after marriage and felt like eating the other day and ended up making for dinner.
Below is the recipe details
Rice flour – 2 cups
Carrot – Shredded ( 1/2 cup )
Onions – 2  ( chopped )
Green chillies – 2 ( depends on the how spice you want ) – nicely chopped
Cumin seeds – 2 tsp
Salt – to taste
Coriander leaves – 1/2 bunch ( chopped )
Water – to knead the dough
Oil – to grease
Take the rice flour in a bowl . Add the  chopped onions , green chillies, cumin seeds , salt , corainder leaves, carrots into the bowl.
Now add the water slowly to the bowl and mix well until everything comes together to a soft dough ( it should be like the chapathi dough consistency )
Leave it aside for 15 – 20 mins
Take a plastic sheet and grease it with oil , Pinch a lemon size dough and pat  and spread in the sheet like a circle using your hands  ( it should be not too thick or very thin )
Heat the pan and place the sheet upside down and remove the sheet carefully so that roti falls into the pan.
Add little oil and toast the roti on both sides.
Serve it hot with any chutney of your choice.
