kothu parotta recipe
Spicy South Indian recipe
Kothu parotta is a famous street food of South India, especially Tamandu and Kerala. This flavorful dish is made with parotta, egg, onion, green chilies and curry masala. Parotta used for making this dish is a famous main course is soft and layered bread, made with all purpose flour. Unlike North Indian Paratha, this parotta is prepared in a different way.
The word meaning of ‘kothu’ is chopped or minced. It is prepared by mincing or chopping the parotta with egg, vegetable and sauté in vegetables and curry masala. There is no need to make separate gravy for making this kothu parotta, you can use chicken or beef gravy. Here I have used chicken gravy for making this dish. Black tea is the perfect combination for kothu parotta.
