Kothu parotta | Minced parotta

Kothu parotta is one of most popular dishes in Tamil Nadu ,especially in south Tamil Nādu Madurai. Kothu parotta  is made simple  with three basic ingredients: shredded flaky parottas, eggs and salna. Home style kothu parotta is way  healthier and easier than the one from the store. Can alter the kothu parotta according to our taste and need. If We  add some more vegetables to it, it becomes one of the means to introduce veggies to our children's diet..  We can also add chicken, minced mutton etc. I shared Two methods, method one is typical Madurai road style. We can use any kind of curry instead of salna.
