Akki roti

I have now come to normal routine after a busy week followed by a busy weekend. First the Varalakshmi vratham , then avani avittam (sacred thread) . I made a typical south indian food for the avani avittam with sambar , rasam, kootu, curry, vadai, payasam. Unfortunately, I couldn't take the photo as I was really tired with the preparations and I was in no mood to do it. However, we dressed up my son in a panchakatcham (dhoti ) and here's the snap!!! Todays post is akki roti. This is a famous karnataka cuisine, which I learned from my cousin who stays in Mysore. I have been wanting to try it since a long time, and finally managed to make it last week. I will be sending this to Anisheetu who is hosting SWC karnataka this month.
Rice flour- 1cup
Rava- 1cup
green chillies- 2 finely chopped
carrots-1 grated
salt to taste

Mix all the ingredients together and make a firm dough. Make balls of the dough. Flatten the ball to a thin circle (using your fingers) in a kadai as shown in the picture above. Cover with a lid and allo wo cook for sometime. You can easily remove the roti from the kadai. No need to cook on the other side.
Serve hot with chutney.
