Hotel Style Egg Kothu Chapathi Recipe

Egg Kothu Chapathi Recipe
Egg Kothu Chapathi is one of my recent tries.I wanted to try the hotel style kothu parotta is one in my totry list since long. I have tried kothu parotta few times without salna, it tasted good but it did not match the hotel taste so this time I prepared a easy salna to add it to kothu chapathi. I patted my back yes I nailed the came almost similar to the hotel taste I can say 85 %, hubby gave a thumbs up to it. As I am trying to avoid maida parotta I made it with whole wheat chapathi's but I thought you can use lachha paratha for this recipe , which will be more apt.

I am still waiting for my brother to taste test and give me his feedback as he is a great fan of kothu parotta.Last 2 times he gave only a flying visit so I couldn't make this for him, so am waiting for his next visit.

My Notes:

  • You can use the salna as sidedish for chapathi / parotta etc.Since I made it for adding to kothu chapathi I didn't spice it up more, just made a simple salna.
  • You can even add tomatoes along with onion.
  • Kalpasi is must as it lends a great flavour which gives it the apt hotel style.
  • Use a sharp edge laddle to mince the chapathi.
  • Use leftover chapathi.If you are using fresh chapathi let it to cool down then proceed.
  • Adding capsicum is purely optional, I just added it for extra crunch.For vegetarians, you can add any veggies of your choice along with capsicum.
  • Instead of chapathi you can even use laccha paratha.
  • You can even use ready made parotta, cook it and then use it.
  • I reserved about 2 tbsp of the gravy and added the rest.If purely depends on your taste and preference.
