Akki roti using paneer and nuts

Its been long time i prepared akki roti. When i was in hyderabad, my neighbour(from karnataka) used to prepare her famous state dish every week in her home and  used to serve for me too with lovely coconut chutney.. Preparing akki roti is not so easy for me coz she used to tap the dough directly in hot tawa and prepare very thin and perfect round shape roti's. Those are lovely and memorable days, i used to learn lots of karnataka recipes from her and try out at home...and that too newly married, imagine the risk that  my husband took ;)
Tried this akki roti for yesterday dinner, very nutritious and healthy one for kids....I have seen so many kids of my cousin's who don't like nuts....You can try adding nuts this way too so that they get their nutrients in  diet...My memories of hyderabad made me to try this paneer n nuts akki roti :)
