Kothu chapathi recipe | Mutta kothu chapathi with leftover chapathis just like the street side mutta kothu parotta. replacing parottas with leftover chapathis, this is one of the tasty street food recipes of tamilnadu.

Kothu Parotta is very popular in Tamilnadu street food shops. We shout standing among the small petty shop, “Anna rendu kothu parotta parcel”, he identifies us with the voice and gets it ready within minutes.

I love watching the way they make it, breaking the eggs, withering the masalas, scrambling the parotta and pouring the salna. At least 5 minutes of intense kothu is needed and that’s y its got its name, “KOTHU PAROTTA”. mere sauteing doesn’t make this dish.

They make music when they do this. and they use just a glass tumbler to do this action. If you do not have this wide iron pan, then simply use any iron dosa tawa. But based on size, limit the quantity to make for 1 at a time.

  1. So many times I have followed this recipe and it’s always the best. Where did u get that dosa tawa from? They look professional, just like the roadside one.
