Avarekalu Akki Rotti

Avarekalu / Anapaginjalu / Pituku Bellu . They are seasonal beans, available during winters and are ate to heart’s content till their season is over!

Avarekalu for breakfast, avarekalu for lunch and avarekalu for dinner !

Though it is a task to clean and prep the beans, no pain no gain! Their taste is to die for !

Avarekalu akki roti is one of my favourites.. I tasted this during a cousin’s wedding and fell head over heals in love with them !


Rice Flour – 1.5 cups

Onions – 2 Finely Chopped

Green chillies – 2 finely chopped

Coriander and dill leaves – 1/2 cup

Avarekalu – 1 Cup ( Cleaned and dehusked ) , boiled in lightly salted water for 10 minutes.

Jeera – 1 tsp

Curd – 1/2 cup

Salt to taste

In a large bowl, add the dry ingredients , mix well and let them sit for 10 minutes.

Slowly add the curd and make a soft dough, additionally add water if necessary . cover and let sit for 15-20 minutes.

To make the akki rotti, the easiest way is to make it on a cold pan .

Grease a cold pan, take a medium sized ball and spread it on the pan using your fingers. Drizzle oil on the sides, cover and cook for 3-4 minutes on low flame.

Flip and cook on the other side for 2 minutes.
