Kothu Parotta



Kothu Parotta

 If you have  left over parotta or parathas here is a recipe which will not fail to interest you. It is a wonderful dish.Kothu parotta is a street food and is common in fast food joints in South India, especially Tamil Nadu. This is made by chopping parattas into small pieces and stir frying along with onions,tomatoes,spices,shredded chicken or scrambled eggs.

Ingredients
Frozen Kerala Parotta or paratha-4
Egg 1 (optional)
Chicken cooked and diced- 1/2 cup
Tomato-1
Onion-1
Green chilly-2
( I used Jalapeno pepper)
Ginger garlic paste- 1 1/2 tsp
Chilly powder- 1/3 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1/3 tsp
Chicken curry or kurma gravy- 3 tbs ( optional)
Garam masala- 1/3 tsp
(If you are not using chicken gravy add
more of chilly powder and garam masala)
Coriander leaver- a little




Cook chicken along salt, turmeric powder and pinch of pepper powder. When cooked cut into small bite sized pieces and keep aside.
Tear parattas into small pieces. If you are using frozen reheat it using microwave or tawa.
Heat oil in a pan. Beat one egg and add into the hot pan and scramble it. Remove this into a plate and keep aside. In the same pan add little more oil and saute onions till it changes color. Next add ginger garlic paste and continue to saute till onion turns golden brown. Add tomatoes, green chilly, turmeric powder, chilly powder and saute for a minute. Next add the chicken and the kurma gravy and allow all this to mix well. Finally toss in parattas, scrambled egg,garam masala and stir fry in high for about a minute.Garnish with coriander leaves. Serve warm.

Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy..
