Akki Rotti with Carrots & Cucumber

Akki Rotti this time it is with Carrots and Cucumber. You know it well eating vegetables is always a healthy habit. Whether it is cooked or raw, they do help in digestion and keep you fit. So this way you can feed some vegetables to your kids, elders and the whole family.

I have used rice flour, ground cucumber, coconut and grated carrots. Not much of spice or chilly. Just added little pepper instead of chilly which is good for digestion. It not only adds aroma to the rotti, it gives a different taste.
Lets see some benefits of eating cucumber in our diet.

Eating cucumber daily helps to dissolve kidney stones. They are full of Vitamin A, B and C which helps to boost immunity and energy. They contain minerals like magnesium, potassium, silicon.
