Egg Kothu Porotta


This is an exact recipe for Egg Kothu Porotta, a dish very popular in Tamil Nadu. I have been looking for this taste for a long time and was able to get the recipe talking to chefs in tamilnadu. Check out the video below for the recipe direction. Muttai Parotta as it is called in Tamil Nadu is a dish based on a the Sri Lankan version, where it originated as Kothu Roti. It is made using paratha , eggs, some meat, and a spicy curry or gravy that are tossed together in a hot cast-iron griddle with sufficient oil. Kothu means ‘minced’ in Tamil where the small strips of soft and flaky parottas are coated with a medley of spices and salna (gravy) and pounded into a mince using the edge of a flat spatula. In most restaurants it is served with raita but you can savor the dish without any accompaniment. Its a meal on its own, very filling and full of flavor. This is a super simple and tasty kothu porotta recipe made with left over mutton gravy. You can also use vegetable kuruma or chicken gravy. Kids will enjoy this kothu porotta. There are not many ingredients and time needed if you have the porotta and gravy.
