Veg Kothu parotta recipe

Veg kothu parotta | கொத்து பரோட்டா in Tamil, a popular Madurai street-style food, recipe with step by step pictures and full video.

Generally, Kothu parotta is made using eggs and non-veg gravy. I have seen many shops in my native town Madurai making Kothu parotta. But always they make with non-veg gravy or egg kothu parotta. So i never had a chance to taste the street style one.. Later i have tasted Veg kothu parotta in many restaurants but never tried on my own at home. I have posted the Chilli parotta recipe in Jeyashris kitchen a few years back. Two years back when i did a live cookery demo in Singapore. I made this recipe and it was a super hit. That time i used Veg salna but in this recipe i used chana kurma.

We can make the kerala malabar parottas at home and use it to make Veg kothu parotta. I used store-bought parottas for making this recipe.

Stay tuned for new posts from New year 2020 from new location. Wishing you all a very Happy new year 2020.

Ginger garlic paste can be added after the onions are cooked.
2. Fennel seeds can be added along with curry leaves.
3. Kurma or Veg salna makes the kothu parotta moist, so don’t miss to add.

    Lip smacking.. I prepared this last dinner using Salna and readymade malabar parantha brought from the shop. For side dish had onion raita. Since I eat spicy I added 3-4 green chilies while sauteing the onions at first stage. Thank you mam for sharing this recipe.
