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.
