Muttai Kothu Parotta And Egg Kurma

Muttai Kothu Parotta And Egg Kurma
Kothu Parotta (literally, minced parotta), is a delicacy popular in the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu. It is made using parotta, egg, meat, and salna, a spicy sauce.The ingredients are thrown on a hot cast iron griddle lubricated with oil. These are minced and mixed by repeated pounding using a heavy iron spatula, the sound of the which can be heard for a long distance. It is served with onion raita. The last time I had one of these yummy item was 3 yrs back when I was visiting my native place in "namakkal".My hubby was in very good mood and made kottu parotta for us. I paired up Egg Kurma.
