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%.
