Sabudana Rotti

There are days when many of us crave for something beyond the staple rice and chapatis. Rotti’s are quite popular in Karnataka as a healthy and filling meal option. As kids when my mum used to make akki rotti at home, my sister and I would finish it in a matter of minutes.

Rotti’s are a hot favorite food in my house – any kind – Akki rotti (rice flour), Raagi rotti, Rava rotti and sabudana rotti 🙂

Here is the recipe for Sabudana Rotti:
