This post is a long time pending post,my friend Sangeeta requested long time back to post this recipe! I was bit hesitant coz of the photography part,as I always make this for dinner,and I hate to take pictures in the night….But last week itself I promised her that,I will post it for her,but I din’t kept my promise…So sorry Sangeeta,but its better to be late,than never. As I was afraid,the photos, especially the step wise pictures are really ugly,I am not satisfied,not even a 10 percent :(
I will make sure to update the pictures one day when I get to make in the evening and the lighting is better… Pictures Updated!!
|Frozen parota||2 nos.|
|Capsicum||1 no .,big|
|Ginger(optional)||1 inch piece|
|Green Chillies||3 nos.|
|Coriander leaves,chopped||3 tblsp,|
|Red chilli powder||1 tsp|
|Sambar powder||1/2 tsp|
|Garam masala powder(optional)||1/4 tsp|
|Chilli sauce or tomato sauce||1 tbsp|
|Spring onion(Optional)||2 tblsp|
|Grated carrot (optional)||2 tblsp|
- Toast parotta as usual to golden brown in a pan and cool down,cut into desired size pieces. I usually use knife or kitchen scissors for this. You can cut into small bite size squares or even thin strips,…its our wish how we want it to be.
- Chop the onions in to chunks and slice the capsicums into thin strips.Crush the garlic (with skin) and finely chop the ginger.Slit the green chillies and chop the coriander leaves,use the stem part too.
- Heat a broad non stick pan with oil and add the crushed garlic first,when it turns golden brown,add the chopped ginger and fry just a while.(I dint add ginger,as I dint had any in hand)
- Add the onion and fry till transparent ,followed by the capsicums and coriander leaves.
- Fry for a minute in high flame,(and if you know tossing,toss them in such a way that it gets exposed to direct fire,it smells awesome! Or else) just fry for a minute in high flame.
- Add the powders mentioned and sprinkle needed salt and add the sauce.
- Lower the flame to minimum and just make sure that all gets evenly spread .
- Add the cut parotta pieces and mix it so that everything coats the parota pieces properly.
- Lastly add more coriander leaves,spring onion and carrot and toss well in high flame.
Serve hot with onion raita the best ever combination for this. Make sure you have a glass of water or any drink near by, coz its really HOT ;)
