Written by: 7aumsuvai
Madurai special Muttai Kothu idli recipe, it tastes exactly like Muttai Kothu Parotta/ Egg Kothu Parotta. Spices used in this recipes are exactly same like Kothu parotta.I prepared this recipe with a leftover idli for our Sunday breakfast. It was a big hit in our family. Serve it with plain salna and onion raita.

Serves 3 to 4
  • 8 to 10 no’s – Idli (leftover)
  • 3 no’s - Egg
  • 2 big – Onion (chopped)
  • 1 no – Tomato (chopped)
  • 1/2 tsp – Fennel seeds/saunf/sombu
  • 1/4 tsp – Turmeric powder
  • 1 to 2 tsp – Red chilli powder (I had used kuzhambu milagai thool)
  • 1/2 tsp – Pepper powder
  • 1 handful – Fresh curry leaves
  • 1 handful – Coriander leaves chopped
  • 2 to 3 tbsp – Sesame oil
  • Salt to taste

Preparation method:
  1. Crumble the idlies into pieces, set it aside.
  2. Heat a tawa, when it is super hot, add chopped onion, tomato,fennel seeds,turmeric powder,red chilli powder,salt to taste and sesame oil, mix well thoroughly for 3 to 4 mins over high heat.
  3. Spread the mixture in the tawa and let it cook until the tomatoes are mushy. Bring the masala to the center, add egg and enough salt, mix well quickly. Immediately add the crumbled idli and continue to mix well.
  4. Take two dosa ladle, start mincing the idlies(that is called Kothu) as shown in the video. It not only helps to blend the onion mixture,egg and idli together but, also stays soft for a long time.
  5. Add fresh curry leaves, and pepper powder as needed, check for salt if needed add more. Finally add coriander leaves, mix well and switch off the stove. Serve hot with salna and raita.

  • You may replace kuzhambu milgai thool with red chilli powder+garam masala powder.
  • You may replace idli with parotta, you will get yummy Kothu parotta.
  • You may add a little plain salna/Empty salna to this kothu to make it slightly soggy and tasty.
