Akki Rotti (rice flour roti)

My today recipe one more flat bread recipe with different flour but a traditional breakfast recipe from Karnataka. This flat bread is made with rice flour which is well known as Akki rotti. These rice flour roties are quite popular in few south Indian states with some small variations. There is one more version of rice roti in Karnataka which is called Coorg style ubbu rotti. This ubbu rotti is a plain rice flour roti which is made with rice flour and cooked rice some time added with a small amount of all purpose flour. But this ubbu rotti is a plain rotti no masala in it and it is a thin roti like phulka. 
Today recipe is a rice flour rotti which is a best choice for breakfast. you can add finely chopped or grated vegetables like carrot, chopped greens like fenugreek leaves, dil leaves. So this is known as masala Akki rotti.
