This is a traditional roti from the state of Karnataka. Akki means rice. So rice flour is the key ingredients of this roti with a little addition of semolina. I have added a spoonful of ata too. The vegetables can be of your choice or the ones available in the kitchen. Traditionally desi ghee (clarified butter) is used to make them. This delicious roti can be served with any side dish or setved with pickle. It tastes awesome by itself too.
