Egg Kothu Parotta / முட்டை பரோட்டா

Written by: Shanthi Muthuvel

Kothu Parotta is a very popular dish in southern districts of Tamil Nadu. It is a minced parotta with egg and salna(a spicy gravy) . I have tried egg Kothu Parotta with a ground masala instead of adding salna. This way you don't have to prepare salna separately and kothu praotta will come out well and not very dry.

Notes:

  • I have tried frozen parotta, instead you can try making your own layer parotta.
  • For additional spicy you can add pepper powder while adding egg.
