akki ubbu rottiukkarisida akki rotti | akki ubbu rotti | soft akki roti | soft rice roti with step by step photo and video recipe. roti or flatbread recipes are very common for most of the indian demographics and it is a must for most of the meal. traditionally it is made with either wheat flour or plain flour but can also be made with other choices. one such gluten-free option is rice roti and ukkarisida akki rotti from kannada cuisine is one such variation known for its taste and flavour.

well many would start asking this question by now, what is the difference between traditional akki roti and ukkarisida akki rotti. the major difference is the puffiness and softness it brings with this recipe compared to the traditional one. as you can see in the video, it puffs like a phulka and cooked similar to the phulka. in other words, it is half cooked and put directly to the flame so that it puffs. in addition, this roti is just made with rice flour as compared to the crisp akki rotti. you do not add spices, herbs and coconut which helps to make it flat and crisp and avoid puffiness. these are the 2 major differences, but from a taste perspective, each has its own appeal and taste flavour.

ukkarisida akki rottifurthermore, i would also like to add some more tips suggestions and variations for a perfect ukkarisida akki rotti. firstly, i would heavily recommend using fine-textured rice flour for this recipe. avoid using coarse powder as you may not get the same softness and puffiness. you may also use rice grains but may have to powder it to fine before using it. secondly, while cooking in the direct flame, make sure to turn the heat to full flame. this helps to puff up the roti immediately. however, you may need to be careful while flipping it and avoid burning it. lastly, these roti’s taste great with spicy and creamy curries, like bharli vangi, sprouts masala and baingan bharta.
