Kothu Parota is a famous street food down south in Tamil Nadu. It can be made using vegetables, Meat or Egg .Though now a days we get this in all restaurant the kothu parota’s taste best which is been bought in roads Side shops . Usually it is prepared by adding the salna to the shredded parota. But I made it simple by just adding the spices and it tasted similar to the Road side Parota. This has been my favourite street food since child hood. Happy that I was able to recreate that in home...
Step by Step Method with Pictures:
1) In a kadai add in oil once the oil becomes hot crack open three eggs. To this add in Pepper powder and salt.
- Instead of adding the spice powders a cup of salna(vegetables cooked in a coconut based gravy) can also be added. However kothu parota tastes better either ways.
- I used my Home made Kerala Parotta for preparing the Kothu Parota.
- Any readymade or store bought parota can be used.
- This recipe can be altered to prepare vegetable or chicken kothu parota as well.
