Akki Roti - My favorite Karnataka Dish!

I am sending this recipe to Meeta's "Monthly Mingle - One dish Dinner" March 2008 event

Rice flour - 2 cups (eyeballed measurement)
Onions - chopped 1 cup
Carrot - 1 grated
Ginger - chopped 1 tbsp
Coconut - 1/2 cup shredded
Curry leaves
Hing - a pinch
Green chillis
Jeera - 1 tsp
Coriander leaves - chopped - a handful

Mix all the above ingredients and make a soft dough with water. Mix a tbsp of oil at the end and divide into big balls.(see the 1st picture).
Heat a small pan(which is curved). Make sure the pan is not very hot. Take a big ball size dough and place it in the tawa. Spread some oil on your hand and pat the dough(press all the sides to spread evenly). See picture below.

Pour oil on the edges and close the pan with a lid. Simmer. Cook on both sides until golden brown. (It takes about 8-10 minutes on one side and 2-3 minutes on the other side). Tastes great even without any side dish. Can be served with coconut chutney.

Serves: 2
