Kothu parotta is the famous street food item over here.I love this dish so much..It is a dish that you want to prepare when you have leftover parotta last night.Just tear those,add some onions and stuffs,crack open two egss mix it up and eat it(Don’t forget the spices).If you have ever seen on those street shops they will prepare like the above method,but they will pour a little of that lovely salna in it,it will give a unique taste to this dish.You could also add any chicken curry to this.If you want chicken kothu parotta just add sliced up chicken after frying the onions and continue the process from that on.You could also make your own parotta,check this link for recipe.And if you want to try that typical street food salna just check this link .So Hope you all give this a try and tell me how it came out.
