Soya Roti

Akki roti is  a very popular dish in Karnataka cuisine. It is very delicious and easy to make. This roti with any spicy chutney tastes yummy. In this recipe I made a slight variation. Here I used soya flour instead of rice flour as soya is considered extremely nutritious and it has a good amount of protein. Since it  has a low glycemic index, it suits well for both diabetics and those who are on diet.

Here comes the recipe:



One cup of soya flour

One medium sized onion (finely chopped)

Two green chillies (finely chopped)

1/2 tsp cumin seeds

1/2 tsp asafoetida

Few coriander leaves (finely chopped)

Half cup of sour curd

Salt as required

Olive oil or cooking oil as required



Take a mixing bowl and put soya flour, chopped onion, chopped green chillies, cumin seeds, asafoetida chopped coriander leaves and enough salt

Mix well

Using sour curd and enough water, knead it into a very soft pliable dough

Let it remain for 10 minutes


Take a plantain leaf and grease it with oil

Place one portion ( size of a small ball) of the dough in the plantain leaf


Smear oil in the hand and spread it nicely in the shape of roti with your fingers


Lift the plantain leaf carefully and transfer the roti onto hot tawa


Slowly peel off the plantain leaf

Pour some oil around it


Cook for about a minute, flip and cook for another minute

Keep flipping till it gets well cooked on both sides


Serve hot with coriander chutney

Raw Mango Chutney



Half bunch of coriander leaves

Few mint leaves

One or two green chillies

Half raw mango

1/4 tsp sugar free powder

Salt as required


Grind coriander leaves, mint leaves, green chillies, raw mango, sugar free powder and salt into fine paste

Serve along with soya roti
