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 :)

ok lets start our akki roti now.....

Ingredients :

1 Cup Paneer, grated
1 Onion, finely chopped
2 Green chillies
5 Cashews
5 Badams
2 Tbsp Groundnut, roasted
2 Cup Rice flour
Salt to taste
1/2 Cup Pudina and Coriander leaves

Method :

Grind Badams, cashews and groundnuts into fine powder, keep aside.
Coarsely grind green chillies, coriander leaves and pudina.
Now mix all ingredients and make dough by adding little water and oil.
Take handful of dough and make a ball.
Heat tawa, smear oil and rub it. Now place the ball in middle of the tawa and tap them gently to make thin round shaped roti.
Cook in medium flame.
Smear little oil. wait till one side get cooked and Slowly turn the roti's other side to get cooked.
Once done, remove from flame and serve hot with coconut chutney.
