Kothu parotta
I make chilli parotta when I run out of any dinner idea for Aj and Vj, for a change in the regular dinner menu. I actually never have tasted kothu parotta before. For first time, I tasted in Nalan restaurant. Then saw Divya’s show in Sun Tv. So wanted to try my hands in trying kothu parotta. So I remembered what ingredients I saw and tasted in the restaurant. So tried this and loved it a lot. Health conscious people can try kothu chapathi instead of kothu parotta, the same way Happy. I wish once I should taste veg kothu parotta (If available) in road side shop Tongue to see how it actually tastes. I understand, they chop the parottas with two spatullas in the road side shops with that typical sound that makes on the iron tawa. I should try once that way. But this is my own version, without the parotta being kothufied .

Tips

    • You can add biryani masala in place of garam masala or pav bhaji masala. You can also use half pav bhaji and half garam masala.
    • You can use ginger garlic paste in place of ginger.
    • You can add less kurma than mentioned from 1/2 to 3/4 cup.
    • If you don’t have kurma, then you can pour little water, with salt and more masala powders in it. Vegetables can be added in that case along with tomato.
    • You can garnish with coriander leaves, but I like curry leaves flavour dominate the dish.
    • Left over kurma can be used the best for kothu parotta .
    • You can add cooked chana in this.

Serve hot immediately with onion raita like me. If you have veg kurma, you can serve as side dish as well.
