Kothu Parotta

This is a best way to use leftover parottas,chapathi or roti..My dad used to get this kothu parotta from one of the famous restaurants in Tuticorin which is famous for parottas..However I have not tried my hand in making parottas..So I made this using the frozen parottas available here..


Parottas -3 or 4
Chili powder - 1 teaspoon
Garam masala - 1 teaspoon
Coriander powder - 1 teaspoon
Capsicum/Bell pepper (any color) - 1
Peanuts - 10
Onion - 1
Tomato - 1
Egg - 1 (optional)
CUmin seeds - 1 teaspoon
Tomato ketchup - 2 tablespoons


Tear the parotta pieces roughly..If you want it to be more fine just pulse once or twice in a blender..Set aside.
In a pan heat some oil and add the cumin seeds.Once they start spluttering add the chopped onions and saute for a while.Then add the tomatoes and cook..Add the bell peppers and cook till they remain crunchy..Add the egg and scramble..However eggs optional.Add the peanuts,chilli,turmeric,coriander powder and garam masala..Stir well..Finally add the parottas..Combine well by stirring..Drizzle the tomato sauce on top and mix again..
Serve hot with raita..Also tastes good by itself..
