Akki Roti Recipe- Rice Flour Rotis

Akki roti is a gluten free flat bread made of rice flour, spices, herbs and vegetables. Akki means rice flour and roti means flat bread. Roti is the common word for flatbreads in India. It is also known as akki rotti or arisi rotti (Tamil). It is a vegan recipe too.
These rotis are gluten free, super delicious, healthy and very filling. You can make it as simple or as elaborate you like. Here I am sharing a very flavorful masala akki roti recipe. Rice roti is usually served with spicy eggplant curry called ennegayi but you can also serve it with chutney.
