What I love about this Rice Flour Bread:

I have been waiting for todayto share this recipe for rice flour roti with you…

Why today? Because this is a magical recipe and I wanted to share it on the three-year anniversary of my most magical day: my wedding.

I know this is a totally absurd comparison, but this recipe for rice flour flatbread is kind of like mymarriage. The flatbread ismade up of twosimpleingredients (rice flour + water). My marriage is made up of two simple people (me + Roby). BUT. When you put us together…we create something unexpected. Something magical.

(Yes, feel free to roll your eyes, lol).

What am I even talking about?Now that I’ve completely lost both of us… I’ll just talk about the bread 🙂

Rice Flour Roti

This rice flour roti, also known as akki roti, isn’t fancy. It’s not exceptionally flavorful or delicious or really anythingother than a simple flatbread. It’s a vehicle that’ll help you scoop up meat, vegetables, or curry.

I know a lot of my readers have food allergies and so I’m hoping thatthis flatbreadwill be really useful to those of you who can eat rice flour. (If you can’t eat rice flour, then try my paleo naan, coconut flour naan, or my paleo roti).

How to Make Roti (2 ingredients, Gluten Free)

You boil some water and then add rice flour.It forms a crumbly mixture, like this:

Dump the crumbly mixture onto a piece of parchment paper andkneaduntil you form the dough. Shape the dough into a large log and thencutthe log into six pieces (or however many pieces you want):

Roll each piece into a ball:

Then flatten the ball between two sheets of parchment paper. Use a rolling pinto roll them out as thin as you can. Cookthe rice flour flatbreads on a non-stick skillet over medium heat until both sides are cooked through:

Easy, right? I can’t wait to hear what you think!

Is Rice Flour Gluten-Free?

Yes! This roti is completely gluten-free because it’s made with rice flour.

    Wow, these are amazing! As someone very new to the gluten free life, and currently on a very restricted diet to heal the gut, I was excited to find a “bread” recipe that I could make and enjoy. As someone who loves to bake, I’m a firm believer in weighing ingredients. I was using Bob’s Red Mill organic stone ground Brown Rice Flour. I used 132 gm of the flour to 1 cup of water and it was 100% perfect. Thank you for a great and easy recipe!
