Veg Salna recipe | Parotta salna recipe

Parotta salna is a famous street food in Tamil nadu, espeically in my native town Madurai. Though i have never tasted the salna in road side shops, i used to admire the sound of Kothu parotta and the mesmerizing smell of the salna made in the shops. Most of the salnas are non veg and so i never attempted to try that there. I remember tasting Chilli parotta from a famous road side shop in Madurai, which our friend bought once for us. Recently i got the recipe of vegetarian salna from our neighbor aunty, who gave me the recipe of kuska, kurunai vadai.. Aunty sent me the handwritten recipe through what's app and i tried it immediately the next day. It tasted so yum and we had with Kuska biryani and kids had with store bought frozen parotta. This parotta salna goes well with chapathi too.
