“Rotti ” actually needs no intro to any Kannadiga.For people who are wondering what this rotti(stress on “tt” ) is , let me translate it as a type of roti / flatbread .There are many different types of rotti one can make like Akki rotti , ragi rotti , rava rotti , ubbu rotti etc and today it’s khara akki rotti . It’s called as kodubale rotti as spices used for making this spicy rotti is same as that of kodubale . Addition of roasted chutney dal , roasted gram , sesame seeds makes it more tasty , nutritious and filling . Do try this tasty spicy akki rotti and let me know how you liked it . Since it already has spices .. no side dish s required .. relish with fresh curd / butter .Here you go …
To a mixer .. transfer all the ingredients mentioned under masala . Add little water and grind to a fine paste .
Take a mixing bowl and add all the ingredients one by one .. Rice flour , roasted gram powder , ground masala , crushed peanuts , roasted sesame seeds and ajwain .
Add lukewarm water little by little and mix it nicely to form a dough. The dough should be such that its easy to spread / pat with hands. It should not be too hard ,smooth-firm dough.
There are two ways in which you can spread the rotti on the tawa :
1 . Grease a plastic sheet / aluminum foil / parchment paper /banana leaf .Take an orange sized dough and pat it evenly with your hands to a medium thin pancake.Wet your hands in between with water to ease the patting.Make a hole on the rotti so that they get cooked uniformly. Transfer to a hot griddle .
2 . Grease the cold tawa and take orange sized dough and pat it evenly on the cold griddle to a medium thin pancake.Switch on flame , drizzle oil and cook on medium flame. Check out my akki rotti video on youtube for a detailed method
Pour some oil in the holes and all over the rotti.Cover and cook till it becomes slightly brown in colour. Then flip the rotti and continue cooking for about a minute or so till the rotti becomes crispy.
Spicy Khara rotti / kodubale rotti is ready to enjoy . Serve it with Butter / curd .
This rotti needs the mentioned quantity coconut and little more oil to cook . So don't reduce .
In the authentic recipe .. onion , carrot , coriander leaves etc are not added as in kodubale we don't add all those . However for a change in taste you can add .
Don't powder groundnut fine .. tastes good when we get few pieces here and there while eating .
