We have become lazy people after being on diet for a while now. No one likes to go shopping for vegetables and we end up eating variety of dishes with just tomato and onion. You won't even find cilantro in our fresh herbs corner. So after much whining I saw two beetroots find way to our home.
Then there was the rice flour that has stayed good for 4 months without seeking attention. Now I need to use it I thought. So it was Beetroot Akki Roti for lunch today.
1 beetroot grated
1 cup heaped rice flour
2 green chilies
20 curry leaves
1 teasppoon sambhar powder
water to knead
Knead together all the ingredients with water enough to make a pliable dough.
Take a quarter plate and grease the backside. Divide the dough into six balls. Pat one ball on the quarter plate. Put the non stick pan on high heat. Invert the plate into the non stick pan. After 5 mins the flattened dough will peel off easily. Remove the plate. Roast the Akki roti on both side with minimum oil till you see dark spots on the roti.
Make it extra crisp if you like it that way by reducing the heat and roasting for longer.
The beetroot Akki roti tasted absolutely delicious with sambhar powder giving a spicy dimension to the sweet beetroot. Traditionally sambhar powder is not added to Akki roti and did I say Beetroot Akki roti is traditional? Just enjoy madi!
