For something appetising for a lovely evening , look no further than this awesome Kothu parotta, which can be made in a jiffy!!!! I made this with store bought Kerala parotta, and it will take just 10-15 minutes to mix and make it.
It is one of the popular street foods in Tamil nadu and in Kerala we used to get it only in good restaurants.It was a regular snack in my home, back in school days, and my mom usually make it with left over beef or chicken . NJoy it over a cup of coffee!!!!!
Hot coffee and spicy kothu parotta will no doubt tickle your taste buds.
