Akki rotti is one of the popular breakfast item originated from Karnataka.There are 2-3 ways of making akki rotti.It can be done by soaking dosa rice for few hours and then grinding and making a thick batter from it.It can also be done with rice flour.In this post I have given the detailed akki rotti recipe using rice flour.
