Tamil Recipes from  

Kottu Parathas or Kothu Parottas are minced parathas served in street-side food trucks and eateries across Tamil Nadu.

Leftover chapathi/paratha pieces are beaten up using a spatula on a cast-iron griddle and cooked along with masalas. It is a crowd-favourite snack that is a meal by itself. 

Kottu Parathas can be made with egg or chicken or minced mutton and even mixed vegetables, just like in this recipe. Our vegetarian version uses potato, carrot, beans, peas and cauliflower. 

Kothu Parotta can be served with salna, a spicy sauce served as a side dish.
