Masala Akki Rotti (Rice Roti)
This is what I make something tasty with the leftover rice. But the rice must be softly done for this as it is mashed and rolled into rotis.
1 bowl of soft boiled rice
1/3 bowl of Rice flour
1/3 bowl of finely chopped Onions
1/3 bowl of grated Carrots
½ bowl of Dill leaves OR
Coriander leaves (cilantro) OR both
1 small chopped green Chilli
Method of preparation
Fry the onions in a half tsp of oil till they are pink.
Mash the rice with wet hands (it will be sticky and messy).
Add all the ingredients and mix.
Go on adding the rice flour little by little till the mixture becomes less sticky.
Make it into tennis ball sized balls and press a little to make a disc.
Grease two plastic sheets. Place the disc on the middle of one plastic sheet and cover it with the greased surface of the second plastic sheet.
Press the disc and roll into a thin sheet just like rolling a parota.
Heat the Tawa to medium flame and put half tsp of oil in the middle.
Rice roti needs more heat than parota and oil stops the tawa from overheating.
After rolling the Akki rotti, remove the covering plastic sheet and place it on the tawa along with the basal plastic sheet so that rotti sticks to the tawa. Quickly remove the plastic sheet and let it get cooked like parota. It takes a little longer time than the regular parota(depending on the thickness). Turn and roast the other side also. Putting the oil is optional.
