Chilli Kothu Parotta

My hometown is Madurai  in  India.    There are so many dishes that are famous in my town- particularly Kothu Parotta, Biryani, Idli etc. Kothu Parotta literally means minced Parotta. This Kothu Parotta is a very famous road side food. Here I have prepared vegetarian Kothu Parotta with more vegetables. I have used frozen Kerala type flaky Parotta to save time.

Left over Parotta                               3 no
Chopped tomatoes                           1 cup
Chopped Capsicum                          1 cup
 Grated Ginger                                1 tbsp.
Bay leaves                                     2 no
Cumin seed                                     ¼ tsp.
Snafu powder (Sombu)                    ¼ tsp. (optional)
Turmeric powder                               ½ tsp.
Kashmiri Chili Powder                      1 tbsp.
Pepper powder                                ¼  tsp
Pav bhaji Masala                               ½ tsp
Silted Green chilies                          4 no (Adjust the spicy level according to the   taste)
Red color                                     1/8 tsp.
Oil                                              2 tbsp.
Salt                                          to taste
Chopped Cilantro                          2 tbsp.

  • Microwave the Parotta for 30 seconds, and then cut or tear it into small pieces.
  • Heat the large wok, add oil and season with cumin seed, bay leaves.
  • Saute the green chilies, ginger in it.
  • Now add capsicum, and tomatoes. Fry for few second then add all masala powders and color.
  • Fry them in a medium heat, till raw smell goes out.  
  • Now add the shredded Parotta, and salt, toss to coat the masala.  
  • Stir all the ingredients continuously for 5 minutes on a medium heat.
  • Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with a squeeze of lime .
  • Pachadi/Raitha can be served as side dish to this.

TIP:   Instead of parotta, you can use left over chapattis.
