Akki rotti is a very popular healthy breakfast dish in many states , mostly in Karnataka using rice flour , and rava rotti is another popular breakfast or lunch staple enjoyed in many Southern states . There are many healthy variations using some vegetables or leafy greens . Whichever way , this form of rotti is very healthy as it does not consume too much oil and can be made with variety of healthy flours too .In fact it can be made oil free too , as it is usually patted on plantain leaf and close cooked on a tava which is greased , and as it is like steam cooking , the rottis do not stick to the iron tava .these healthy veggie filled rottis can be served with curd or any chutney .

Here i have prepared a very healthy version of rotti using millet rava ( kodo millets / varagu arisi ) in rava / sooji form which is available now a days in most stores and looks like semolina . In case you find it difficult to get the millets in ready rava form, you can powder the millets at home and sieve it well til you get the fine chiroti rava consistency .

You can also use normal semolina if you do not get millets . The addition of loads of vegetables is what makes it super yummy and healthy , very filling as breakfast or even as a brunch ., keeping you filled for hours . Therefore diabetic friendly and good for those on weight management diet .
