Sabbassige (Dil) Soppu - Akki Rotti

Who does not like Akki Rotti (Rice Rotti ) which is very very famous Karnataka dish.I Love akki rotti with any type. Vegetables added, onion added or any green leaves added.
Sabbassige/Sabseege/Dil Leaves Akki rotti is very famous here in Bangalore  and around. Dil leaves is one of the best healthy leaves and loaded with healthy properties.
I have added Sabbassige/Dil leaves, Onions, coconut, green chilly with Rice flour.
Lets see the recipe Now :

Things Needed :

Rice powder : 2 Cups.
Sabbassige ( Dil) leaves: 2 cups.
Onion : 3 Medium size
Curry leaves : 2 to 3 Tablespoons.
Coriander leaves: 3 to 4 Tablespoons.
Coconut: 1/2 Cup.
Green chilly : 2
Salt : as required.
Oil : 1/2 Cup.
Water:  as required.

Method :

1. Wash and cut Sabbassige leaves and cut into thin pieces.
2. Remove the outer skin of onions and wash it. Cut into small pieces.
3. Wash and cut coriander leaves, curry leaves, green chilly into small pieces.
4. Wash and remove the outer layer of ginger, wash it again and grate it.
5. Grate coconut and keep it aside.
6. Take a big bowl and put all the cut ingredients and rice flour. ( Dil leaves, coriander- Curry leaves, onions, grated ginger, coconut and salt.
7. Mix it well and add a cup of hot water (boiling water) and leave it for a while. (5 minutes).
8. Add required water and prepare the dough. Let it be bit loose. (It helps to spread the dough evenly).

9. Keep a pan on the fire and heat. Add a spoon of oil and put handful of dough on the pan.
10 Dip your fingers in a bowl of normal water and spread the dough around the pan.
11. Add oil on the top and cover the rotti. Cook on medium and low flame.
12. Turn the other side and put 1/2 teaspoon of oil on the rotti. Let it cook for 2 minutes.
13. Remove from the pan and put it in a serving plate.
14. Put a spoon of Ghee/Butter on the top of Akki Rotti and serve with the side dish you have prepared.
15. Repeat the same way and prepare remaining rotti

Note :

The  Flour should be fine variety. Adding hot water helps the dough to soft and Rotti turns as nice and yummy. Adding more/less oil is optional. You can use palak leaves instead of dil leaves. More/less coconut is optional.
You can also use banana leaf to prepare rotti. Preparing the rotti on banana leaf helps in cooking.
Time " 30 Minutes
Serves : 3 to 4 (According to the size).
