Kothu Parotta


  • Heat a Dosa pan. Iron griddle works the best. Cook the parotta by adding a tsp of oil. Chop them into small pieces roughly using your hands or a knife. Set it aside.
  • In the same hot dosa pan, add some oil and add the finely chopped onions and saute for a few seconds. Keep the flame on medium ans saute well.
  • When it turns slightly transparent, add 2 finely chopped green chillies and tomato pieces. Mix well and add some curry leaves. Saute until the tomato turns mushy.
  • Add salt to taste, 1 tsp of red chilli powder (Adjust according to your spice level) and 1 tsp of garam masala. Mix well and add the salna (will post this recipe soon). Stir for a second and add the chopped parotta pieces. Mix it really well.
  • Now take a dosa flipper and another ladle similar to dosa flipper or you can use a tumbler and turn it upside down. Do the pounding until everything blends well.
  • Make it as a semi dry mixture. Add extra salna if you wish. Garnish with finely chopped coriander leaves and if needed drizzle some lemon juice.
  • Serve hot immediately to enjoy its best taste. You can serve with onion raita as side dish if desired.
