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.
- 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.
