Kothu Paratha(kothu Parota)

Kothu Paratha is one more famous street food from Tamilnadu. But this recipe is originally from Srilanka, a well known snack kothu rotti. But now this is very much popular in Tamilnadu as a street food. After seven in the evening you can hear a sound like tak takaa tak in a  rhythm that means you are near by the Kothu Parota talluvandi (kothu parota stall).

                                                                 You can make this as a vegetarian or with eggs, chicken or any thing you like. Here I gave a simple recipe for this, but in the street food stalls they add chalna( vegetable or chicken kurma) to the kothu paratha to make this more spicy. I didn't add kurma in my recipe if you like can add.

                                                                     This is my recipe with K under street food theme K for KOTHU PAROTA... and here is the recipe..

Good way to use up leftover parathas or rotis. I never saw or heard of this when I was living in Chennai in early 70's.
