I am so happy to begin my April Mega Blogging Marathon, where we will be blogging non-stop for the whole month. We do this as a group twice a year and each time we have a varied and challenging theme to work with. I am a big fan of A-Z themes and even if it is not given as a mandatory, I end up doing it. I did the same again this month and I will be doing A-Z scattered across 4 different themes.

My themes for this month’s Mega BM are Breakfast recipes, Indian sweets, Street foods and Whole grains.


The first recipe for this month is Akki Roti, a famous Rice flour roti from the state of Karnataka. I have heard a lot about this Akki Roti, but have never made it before. After I made this delicious Akki Roti recipe, I am sad that I did not make this much earlier. The kids loved it and had lots of praise for the recipe.

This a very filling breakfast and would keep you filled up for quite a long time. Also, the Akki Roti is very simple to make and can be made in about 15 minutes. Akki Roti uses very basic ingredients as well. I have used onions and carrots in my Akki Roti. We can also add grated cucumber, zucchini along with onion. This is a great choice for someone who is looking for Gluten free and vegan option for breakfast.

Preparation time – 10 minutes
Cooking time – about 10 minutes
Difficulty level – easy

  • Slowly sprinkle water and mix everything to form a soft dough. Make sure the dough is soft and smooth.
  • Heat a cast iron pan or any flat pan to cook the Akki Roti.
  • We can pat the dough directly over the hot pan to make it into a flat roti. I shaped mine on a parchment sheet and then placed it on the hot tawa to cook. We could also use banana leaf or aluminum foil to shape the roti. Do not use plastic sheet as we will be laying the shaped roti along with the sheet on the hot pan.
  • Divide the dough into 4. Place one of the piece on a parchment sheet and using wet hands, shape the dough into a thin flat roti.
  • Slowly lift the shaped roti along with the parchment and flip it and place it on the hot pan.
  • Slowly peel back the parchment paper and poke few holes on the roti.
  • Drizzle about 1 tsp of oil around the roti and let it cook on one side. Carefully flip the Akki Roti and cook it on the other side.
