Parotta Stall Egg Kothu Parotta | Muttai Parotta

Egg Kothu Parotta, a delicious parotta recipe made with minced parotta and egg.In tamil "Kothu" vaguely means "minced", since egg and parotta is used in this recipe, it's called as Egg Kothu Parotta. 
Down south in Tamilnadu, parotta is more a emotion than food. Every street corner has at least one parotta stall. Though they are so many claim against consuming maida, people craziness over parotta never subsides. 

As for me, moderation is the key here and also try to eat as much as home made food right from parotta to pizza. That way you knew what goes into your food and as time goes by, you can develop the awareness of how much oil or cheese is needed to replicate the restaurant style parotta and pizza, once you get that realization, automatically our cravings and consumption is reduced. I'm not a expert in food or nutrition, it's just my humble opinion and learned through my cooking journey.

Ok, now come back to egg kothu parotta recipe, this can be prepared with fresh or with frozen parottas too, both tastes awesome. Back in days, when we visited my grandma place in Sankarankovil for summer holidays, egg kothu parotta was one of our favorite dinner from near by parotta stall where we had to mention how many parottas and eggs need to be added into our kothu parotta like 1:1(one parotta+ one egg) or 2:1(2 parotta + one egg).

There is no fixed ratio for parottas and eggs, some like more eggs in their parotta and ask for more eggs and vise versa. Later never seen such a thing in any other restaurant, so when you make them at home, you can add more or less eggs as per your liking. Now let's check out on how to make this egg kothu parotta.
