Kothu Parotta Recipe by Expert Cooks of India

Kotthu Parotta often referred to by the name of Chilli Parotta is a well-known dish that is popular in Tamil Nadu, especially in Kanyakumari and Virdhunagar district. It is typically prepared with leftover parottas however it is in high demand on a regular basis. Parottas that are left over parottas or fresh parottas are cut up and mixed with a mixture of onions sauteed, shredded chicken eggs, and salna. The mixture is mash-up with large iron spoons and iron griddles, to create the most delicious new food.

What I have provided below will be the recipes to make egg parotta. In the event that you’ve got chicken in your fridge you can include it. Additionally, salna might not be readily available at all time you go to the kitchen. This is why I have provided the recipe to make it without it. The iron griddle you have at home isn’t as strong like the ones that street stores are equipped with. Therefore, you might need to cook for a while longer to achieve that roast appearance.
