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 Tongue.

Veg kothu parotta recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Dinner
Prep Time 10 mins    |  Cook time: 20 mins     Serves: 3

Ingredients

Parotta - 2

Onion - 1

Tomato - 1

Veg kurma - 1 cup

Green chilli - 1

Ginger, finely chopped - 1 tsp

Red chilli powder - 1 & 1/4 tsp

Garam masala/ pav bhaji masala - 1 tsp


To temper

Oil - 1 tbsp

Cinnamon - 1 inch piece

Clove - 1

Curry leaves - 1 sprig


Method

  1. I used Pillsbury frozen parotta. Cooked in tawa until golden. Cool down and tear it roughly into tiny bits.
  2. 1-tear
  3. Heat a pan with oil and temper with the things under ‘To temper’ table, followed by onion, Fry until onion turns transparent. Add chopped tomato and little required salt.
  4. 2-add-onion
  5. Cook until soft. Add masala powder and red chilli powder.
  6. 3-add
  7. Give it a fry in low flame. Add torn parotta.
  8. 4-add
  9. Mix well until the masala coats the parotta. Make a dent in middle and add veg kurma.
  10. 5-pour
  11. Mix and cook for 2- 3 minutes or until the kurma gets absorbed by the parotta evenly and becomes soft.
  12. 6-ready

Notes

    • 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.
