Thinai Akki Roti - Korralu Akki Roti - Navane Roti

Thinai Akki Roti is a Healthy Akki Roti made with Thinai Flour. Normally Akki Roti is made with Rice flour, I replaced it with Thinai flour(Foxtail Millet flour). It came out soft & Delicious. you can replace foxtail millets with Barnyard millets or kodo millet or little millets flour. It is called Thinai in Tamil,Navane in Kannanda & Korralu in Telugu, Kangni in Hindi.Foxtail Millet is a Staple food of South India. Foxtail Millets are high in Dietary fiber which aids in proper break down of food & complete digestion. Studies have shown that carbohydrates and fiber in foxtail millet are beneficial for diabetics, reducing blood sugar levels by about 70%. No we will learn to make thinai Akki Roti.

Korralu Akki Roti

Foxtail Millet - Akki Roti

 Prep Time : 15  min. 
Cook Time : 3 -4   minutes per roti
Recipe Category:Millets   Recipe
serves  :   2 . 

Foxtail Millet/Korralu - 1 cup.
onions - 3 .
Green chillies - 3
cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp.
curry leaves - 1 sprig.
coconut (grated) - 2 tbsp.
coriander leaves - handful.
salt - for taste.

  • Dry Roast the Millets till it slightly browned, cool down & grind into a fine Powder. Making the powder is an important step in making Roti. you can get store bought flour also.

  • Chop the onions,Green chillies, Curry leaves  and Coriander leaves  finely.


    • Take a mixing bowl combine foxtail Millet  flour, chopped onions,cumin seeds,Green chillies, coriander leaves, curry leaves,salt   and Grated coconut.
    •  Mix everything  by adding  water little by little  into soft and spreadable dough.

    • Use white wet muslin cloth or Greased banana leaf or Ziplock cover. Divide the dough into lemon sized balls , take each ball & spread  it into a circular disc,as thin as Possible. In between wet your hands with water for easy spreading.

    • Heat the tawa, when it is hot,place the  roti, over the tawa, drizzle some oil.
    • Cook till, both the sides turns little  golden brown colour then remove it from tawa.Serve hot.

    • I used foxtail Millets to make the dough. Instead you can use kodo Millet or little Millet or Barnyard Millet.
    • you can get store bought flour also.
    • You can also  add  Ground  Coconut + Green chillies + Ginger + salt  while making the dough,instead of chopping it.
