Egg Kothu Parotta Recipe - Mutta Parotta

Rajma Masala
If I can say the one thing that I can compromise on road side shops, it is with no doubt my favourite kothu parotta. I just love the taste in road side shops and it can noway be compared with the taste we get in restaurants. I tried to recreate the taste and it was close to it except for the addition of chalna they use.

Egg Kothu Parotta Recipe - Ingredients

Preparation Time : 15 mins | Cooking Time : 30 mins | Serves : 2
Recipe Category: Side dish | Recipe Cuisine: South Indian

Parotta - 2
Egg - 1
Onion - 1 chopped finely
Tomato - 1 chopped finely
Turmeric powder - a pinch
Red chilli powder - 1 tsp
Pepper powder - 1/2 tsp
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
Coriander leaves - 1 tsp chopped finely

Method:

  1. Chop the parottas into small pieces. Keep aside.
  2. Heat oil, first temper fennel seeds then add add curry leaves, green chillies let it splutter. Then add ginger garlic paste, allow it to brown slightly.
  3. Now add onions, once it turns golden brown, add tomatoes when it turns mushy add turmeric, chilli and pepper powder. Add required salt and mix well.
  4. Then add the eggs mix it to scramble well, once it turns nicely fried and blended with the masalas add the chopped parato and give a stir so that parotta is blended well with the egg and masalas. Garnish with coriander leaves and switch off.
Rajma Masala Recipe I prefer kothu parotta to normal parotta any day and the taste in restaurants can stand no where near the kothu parotta style the road side shops makes. I am yet to make my own parottas , to me it seems to be always a tiresome task but sure to post it soon.

My Notes:

  • You can skip eggs and add any veggie of your choice.
  • Usually in road side shops for 1 plate of kothu parotta they use 2 shredded parotas and 2 eggs with the above said ingredients with chalna added at the end which gives a mushy and soft texture.
  • Also for the road style kothu parotta they add chalna(the kurma that comes with normal parottas) which gives a very nice taste.
  • Amma usually sautes onion and tomato well and then add it to the other other ingredients. You can try this too as tomatoes give a nice flavour.
  • Squeeze lemon juice while serving if you like the flavour.

  21. I usually make kothu parota with leftover sabzis :) Instead of adding the various masala powders I dunk in any sabzi or dal and viola, it's done! I add a few eggs to make it more wholesome. It's a great way to use up leftover curry/vegetables. In fact, this is on the menu tonight!

  33. A 'Parotta' is a parantha,am I right?
    And I also wanted to know what is 'Chalna'.I Googled the term and I guess it is some curry?

    ReplyDelete
  34. i too luv this recipe.. but the ones i have tasted here never match the taste we get in India.
    will try my luck at home :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. @Fahad Khan : Parotta is with fully maida(white flour) but paratha uses wheat flour as the main ingredient. And chalna is a kurma type of siddish they give in road side shops here with parotta :)

    can you post the normal parotta for making chilli and kothu parotto..... and home

    ReplyDelete
  46. Sharmilee..just before adding paratas, try adding our normal chicken gravy(along with the oil in the chicken gravy) to the recipe and then mix paratas ...here after u will not compromise on the taste of ur kothu parotas made on road side...and we never add ginger garlic paste at all as we add our chicken gravy there...it tastes like road side kothu paratas...u and ur family members are welcome home and I will give this wonderful dish...
