 Step 2 :

  • Add water little by little and form into a dough ball. It should not be too soft or too tight. 
  • Divide the dough in 3-4 big balls.

 Step 3 :

  • On a girdle(tava), add some oil. Smear the tava with oil.
  • Place one beetroot dough ball on the tava and pat it into a round , thick or thin roti as you want, as shown in the image below.
  • Make a few holes in the roti with your forefinger.
  • Add a few drops of oil on the roti in the holes(optional).

Cooking beetroot akki rotti :

 Step 4:

  • Cover the roti with a lid.
  • Place the tava on high flame for a minute.

 Step 5:

  • After one minute, reduce the flame to medium and cook for 1 or 2 minutes.
  • Remove lid and see if the roti has lightly browned edges where you made some holes.

 Step 6:

  • Turn the roti with a spatula. 
  • Cook on the other side for 1/2 minute.

 Step 7:

  • Rotti is done. Remove onto a plate.
  • Serve hot with coconut chutney or favorite curry and ghee.


  • The quantity of beetroot may be increased or reduced according to your liking and availability.
  • Adding fresh coconut makes roti soft and tasty too. You can add that according to your taste or omit it.
  • Let the flame be high for the first minute so that the tava heats fast. If the flame is too low from the beginning, the roti may become hard.
  • Lift the lid and check how much it is done in between. Take care not to let the rotti burn. I like it browned.
  • If you like your rotti with a crisp bottom, like I do, reduce flame after the first minute and cook for 2-3 minutes on low flame.
  • If you like soft rotti, cook on high flame for a minute on both sides and remove.

Enjoy beet akki rotti.
