Avocado Akki Rotti / Rice Flour Roti

This is one of the favourite breakfast for Bangaloreans. Surprisingly this is not the common menu item in most of the restaurants I have a favourite place in Bangalore called "AraliMane" in Malleshwaram. They make very nice big rotti along with different chutneys.
You can prepare this rotti by adding any vegetables or greens or just plain. This is the season for Avarekayi in Bangalore. Averekalu rotti is famous during this season.
As I had an avocado, thought of adding and trying it out. I did not find any difference in taste. But the rotti was very buttery and soft. So enjoy....
