Good job posting the recipe. However, The recipe can be more detailed. One of the most important steps in the making the rotti is making the dough. If you can post exact measures to be used Eg: for 1 measure of rice flour use 1.5 measures of hot water. These things will greatly help for people who are looking and trying these recipes.

Please note that this is just a suggestion and your recipe posting is much appreciated.

Great website, very inspiring to watch your video recipies!
I have improvised the traditional akki roti by mixing in rice flour to a lot of chopped/shredded vegetables like carrots, cabbage, spinach, onion, peas, bell pepper, leave out the coconut . For flavoring I also like to add mint, chillies and coriander. It is very healthful version and people love it. I am going to try this veg. mix in your dibba roti.
Tried your rava dosa recipe - they were crisp but did not come in one piece. Will have to try again. Good luck with this website.
