Kothu Parotta recipe with step by step photos | How to do veg Kothu Parotta 

Few days before i had posed a tomato salna recipe .. remember ?? In continuation to the post , today i have for you all a dish called ” Kothu Parotta ” made using Kerala Parotta, Salna and Egg / Meat / vegetables. Kothu Parotta actually means ‘minced’ Parotta .There are many variations of Kothu parotta- egg / meat / chicken / veg version etc. Today of course i will be sharing with you all the recipe for ” Veg Kothu Parotta ” . Its yummy,delicious and Perfect for breakfast, dinner or as a snack….

The first time I had this dish was long back in a small road-side shop in Chennai . Watching the street vendors making it, is itself a lovely sight . The ingredients are thrown on a greased hot cast iron griddle .They are later minced and mixed by repeated pounding using 2 heavy iron spatula.

Salna is very important ingredient here. I have shown the actual way of doing kothu parotta. But if you want to make it jiffy , you can skip making salna and just spicen up your kothu parrotta with some chilli powder , garam masala powder and chat masala .

As now a days , ready made Kerala parottas are available almost everywhere , making kothu parotta at home is so so easy . Do try this recipe for sure.. i’m confident that you will just love it .

Few points to note while making Kothu Parotta Recipe :

  • I have used ready made ID brand kerala parotta . If you want can make in home too .
  • If you want can apply the same recipe to left over chapathi too.
  • If you don’t have time to make Salna , you can skip and instead make kothu parotta quickly using the short cut method ie once tomato becomes mushy add a tsp of red chilli powder , garam masala powder and little chat masala to it and saute. Later add minced parotta

But before you try ..let me WARN .. this dish is heavy , takes in little more oil and highly irresistible. So if you are on a mission weight loss watch out .. don’t blame me later.. He He….!!!
