Masala Akki Roti /Enne Roti/ Thalipeeth / Indian Rice Bread

Akki Roti is popular cuisine in Karnataka. Its a rice bread, usually served for breakfast.  Lot of variations can be done in making akki roti.  I have used dil leaves in the below recipe. Methi/fenugreek leaves can be used.  Even drumstick leaves( Nugge soppu) can also be used.
 Instead of green chilies, red chili flakes can be used.

1 Onion -medium size finely chopped
1 Small bunch of Dil leaves finely chopped  or Methi leaves small bunch-finelychopped
1 tbspn. Corriander leaves finely chopped
1tspn. Cumin seeds/ Jeera
