Soppina Akki Rotti (Mixed Greens Rice Flatbread)

Soppina Akki Rotti is a gluten free flatbread which is very popular in Karnataka. 2-3 varieties of greens are mixed with rice flour and few other veggies. It is then cooked on a skillet to get a crispy flatbread. It is a very flavorful bread and tastes good on its own. I had written down this recipe from my MIL's sister years ago and finally gave it a try. It turned out very tasty. Do try making this version of 'Akki rotti' and I hope you all like it as much as we do :-)

  • Rice Flour - 1/2 cup
  • Chopped Methi (fenugreek) leaves - Small handful
  • Chopped Sabsige (dill) leaves - Small handful
  • Chopped Cilantro (coriander leaves) - 1-2 Tbsp
  • Chopped Onion - 1/4 cup
  • Grated carrot - 2-3 Tbsp
  • Grated coconut - 1-2 Tbsp
  • Hurikadle (roasted gram) - 1 tsp
  • Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
  • Green chilli, chopped - 1 (I didn't add)
  • Salt- To taste
  • Oil - As required, for frying
  • A piece of banana leaf or parchment paper - For making rotti


Wash fenugreek (methi), Sabsige (dill) leaves and cilantro. Chop them finely. Chop the onion too. 

Now take a mixing bowl. Add rice flour, chopped greens, chopped onions, grated carrot, grated coconut, roasted gram, cumin seeds and salt.

Mix well and make a stiff dough by adding water little at a time.

Divide the dough into three good portions. Then pat it (using your hand) into a thick, round shaped flatbread on a parchment paper or banana leaf (the first flatbread can be directly spread on a tawa. Once done turn on the heat).

Transfer it carefully on the pre heated skillet (place the flatbread along with parchment paper, with flatbread facing the skillet. Then peel off the paper and use it for the next one) and sprinkle some oil. Close it with a lid for a minute.

Once it turns golden brown and crispy, flip it to get golden brown spots on the other side.

Once done, transfer it to a plate. Repeat with the rest of the dough. 
Soppina Akki Rotti is ready!!

Serve it hot as it is or along with any chutney powder of your choice. Above measurement makes three good sized flatbread(rotti).
