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.

Wow it's snowing outside and it was very cold that I wasn't able to get good clicks but manage to get a few trembling. It feels good and my tongue wanted to taste a few bites of hot samosas. It was heaven with a cup of hot masala tea and crispy samosas watching the snow fall from my balcony. I had some masala left and decide to make Moong Dhal doas stuffed with these masala top with beetroot chutney and podi. That was awesome dinner for us and went to bed happily..The day has came to end.
