OMG !!! I haven't blogged for more than two weeks .. And, before I forget that I write a food blog, I am here again .. What kept me really really busy was my cousin's wedding & I was in a totally different world, with all the dressing up, new sarees, jewellery & make-up .. Just what is needed to keep a girl happy :)
The last couple of weeks were choco bloc with loads of family get togethers, that also means I had an overdose of traditional food .. To get my taste buds alive & kicking again, I made Kothu Parotta just for I Me & Myself ...
You Will Need:
- 2 leftover Malabar Parottas/ Chapatis (Frozen will work too )
- 1 large onion - finely chopped
- 1 tomato - finely chopped
- 1 tsp cumin seeds
- 1 tsp ginger-garlic paste
- 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
- 1/2 red chilli powder
- 1/2 tsp Pav Bhaji Masala
- 1/2 tsp Garam Masala
- Salt as per taste
- Cooking oil ( I used Sunflower Oil )
- Chopped coriander for garnish
- Cut the Parottas/Chapatis into 1' inch pieces.
- In a small pan, heat oil. splutter cumin & add ginger-garlic paste. Give it a good stir. To this, add chopped onions & saute until it turns pink.
- Add chopped tomatoes, red chilli powder, Pav Bhaji Masala, turmeric & some salt. Cook till oil separates.
- Add Parotta/Chapati pieces, Garam Masala & mix well.
- Check for salt & cook on low flame for another minute or so. Turn off the stove & transfer to a serving bowl.. Garnish with chopped coriander
Simply Dig in & Enjoi !!!
- If you don't have leftover parottas/Chapatis, you could use fresh ones too, but the leftovers are very handy, Really ..
- I made this with Chapatis as I am not very fond of using Malabar Parottas which is made of APF .. Wholewheat Chapatis are a lot more healthier. I don't think they make a great difference in taste either .. If you think otherwise, let me know :)
- You could use whichever spice powder you want to .. Even, Chole Masala or Rajma Masala for a different kick
- Those who eat eggs, can add a beaten egg right after adding the tomatoes. I do hear from people, that this takes the dish to a different level ...
