KOTHU PAROTTA /KOTHU PRATA



This is my absolute favourite dish. It comes together very easily once you have your parathas ready. Definitely a dish I would make when I'm too lazy to cook. If you have any leftover parathas from the previous day............this might be your go-to dish.

It goes perfectly well with lemon. Our favourite. But most people prefer it with some raita or even pickle.
Parathas are not exactly healthy, but who can resist em?? :)




serves 4-5 people
INGREDIENTS:
oil
onions, chopped - 4 
green chilies, chopped or slit - 6 (more if you like it spicy)
turmeric powder - 1 tsp
eggs - 6
parathas - 7 or 8
ginger, grated - 1 tbsp (optional)
grated carrot - 3/4 cup (optional)
fresh coriander leaves, chopped - 1 tbsp
salt

PROCESS:
  • Shred or cut up the parathas into tiny pieces. If you are feeling lazy pulse them in your food processor ;)
  • in a bowl whisk the eggs with the turmeric powder and some salt and keep ready on the side.
  • In a big wok, heat some oil and saute the onions and green chilies.
  • When the onions have browned slightly, add the ginger and carrots.
  • Add salt
  • Saute for a few minutes till the carrots have lost the raw smell.
  • Now pour the egg mixture into the wok and cook like how you would cook a scrambled egg.
  • Add the coriander leaves too.
  • Once the egg has cooked, add in the shredded parathas and mix well.
  • Check for salt.
  • If you like it slightly crispy, then turn up the flame and stir the kothu parathas. 
  • Serve with raita or pickles or some lemon.
