Chilli Parotta Recipe - Hotel Style Chilli Parotta

Chilli Parotta

I had 2 readers asking for chilli parotta recipe but frankly speaking I have never tried it at home at all. I have chilli parotta and kaima parotta in hotels few time, So searched for few recipes and this hotel style chilli parotta recipe pulled me so bookmarked the recipe long back. I had few leftover readymade parottas so finally tried it last week.I love egg  kothu parotta so much and this chilli parotta has added onto my favorite list now :)

Chilli Parotta Recipe

Chilli Parotta Recipe - Ingredients

Preparation Time : 10 mins | Cooking Time : 20 mins | Serves : 2
Recipe Category: Main | Recipe Cuisine: South Indian| Recipe Reference: Cookery Corner

Parottas - 4 small sized
Onion - 1
Green Capsicum - 1 small sized
Tomato sauce - 1 tbsp
Chilli powder - 3/4 tsp
Coriander leaves - 1/2 tbsp chopped
Oil - 1.5 tbsp + 2 tsp
Salt - to taste

To saute and grind to a paste:

Big Onion - 1 small sized chopped roughly
Tomato - 1 small sized chopped roughly
Poppy seeds - 1 tsp
Cashews - 3
Ginger - 1/2 inch piece
Garlic - 4 cloves
Coriander powder - 3/4 tsp
Garam masala powder - 1/2 tsp


  1. Chop the parottas with a kitchen scissor into small squares.Toast them in a dosa tawa for 3-5mins, set aside(Actually the parottas need to be deep fried but the parotta is already fattening...so I opted to toast them).Heat 2tsp oil in a pan - add onion, garlic and saute till slightly browned then add tomatoes and saute till raw smell leaves and is mushy.Add the spice powders except red chilli powder and give a quick stir.

My Notes:

  • If you want you can skip coriander leaves and add spring onions instead. You can add chopped spring onions along with onion while sauteing and then use few for garnishing too.
  • Make sure the masala paste should be less else the parotta will become very soggy.
  • You can a pinch of pepper powder.While serving add a tsp of lemon juice.
  • Use kashmiri red chilli powder for the bright red color as in restaurants.
  • You can deep fry the parotta pieces too. You can use frozen parottas or readymade half cooked parottas, cook them in dosa tawa then chop them into squares.
