How to make Akki Roti (Rice Flour Roti ) at home | Detailed written and Video recipe for Karnataka Special Akki Roti

Akki Roti / Rice Flour Roti, is a soft-n-crispy flatbread made with rice flour, veggies and basic Indian spices. It’s served with Chutney mainly in Breakfast or Lunch.. It is very popular in Karnataka – A southern State of INDIA- where Akki means rice in Kannada and so it is known as Akki Roti (Rice Roti).

Akki Roti is one of the best way to start your day. It is very easy to prepare and takes only 15-20 minutes..


Traditionally, to make rice roti , dough will be flattened directly on hot tawa. Well, it is a difficult process as it has risk of burning your fingers accidentally. Also not advisable for beginners. And if making for whole family , it’s a tedious task to make directly on pan.

To make Akki Roti, white Cotton Cloth or Banana Leaf or greased Foil or greased Parchment Paper can be used. I made using parchment paper and it works wonderfully great. But , if you have access of Banana Leaf, use that only as its the easiest and healthiest option to make Akki Roti .

Akki Roti can be thin or thick depends on your likings. I personally like thin roti .

  • Veggies like Cucumber, Cabbage, Bottle Gourd can be added too.
  • If you like thin Akki Roti then make sure each veggies chopped /grated thin ..
  • Akki Roti can be made directly on Tava. Grease tava with oil. Before switch on the Gas, spread the Roti evenly. Then, cook on medium flame till crispy. But, before spreading the next roti, make sure tava is not hot Or use 2 tava to use alternatively.
