Usually for breakfast, we make the more common items like idli, dosa, upma etc. In my home state of Karnataka, we also make Akki Rotti etc for breakfast.

In Kannada, "Berake" means "mixed" therefore today's easy to make breakfast dish is called Berake Rotti as it is made using different flours that are mixed together.

The measurements shown below yielded me with 11 Berake Rottis which we enjoyed for a hearty breakfast with garlic chutney

This recipe is adapted from "Berake Rotti" from the popular website Shetty's Kitchen which I came across in Facebook.

  • Wheat Flour, (Atta), 1/2 cup + some for dusting 
  • Gram Flour, (Besan), 1/2 cup
  • Rice Flour, 1/2 cup
  • Semolina, (Rava), 1/2 cup
  • Small- sized Onion, finely chopped, 1 * optional 
  • Green Chillies, finely chopped, 2-3 
  • Coriander Leaves, finely chopped, 1/3 cup
  • White Sesame, 2 tsp
  • Cumin seeds, 1/2 tsp
  • Carom seeds, 1/4 tsp
  • Salt, to taste
  • Ghee/Oil, as required to make the rottis 


In a large bowl, mix well together all the above ingredients ( except the ghee/oil)
To this, add water as required and knead well to make a soft dough 
Keep aside and allow the dough to rest for 15 -20 minutes
After that, knead the dough once again
Divide the dough so as to make equal sized balls for making the rottis
Dust each of the balls with wheat flour and roll the balls to form circular discs (rottis)
Heat a tawa and on medium heat roast each of the rottis one by one, first on one side then when they
are done, drizzle ghee/oil and flip to roast the other side
Serve the Berake Rotti with chutney of your choice
