             I have tasted kothu parotta in Saravana bhavan. It is one of my favorite dishes. My cousin makes very nice kothu parotta reminding the wonderful taste of South India.

Serves up to 2 people
Preparation time: 15-20 minutes 


3 Frozen paratha*
3 finely chopped green chillies
1 tbsp of grated ginger
1/2 tsp of red chilli powder
1/2 tsp of garam masala
1 small cup of onion
1 small cup of red pepper
1 small cup of green pepper
1 tbsp of oil
1 tsp of lemon juice
scallions as garnish
salt as required


1.Cut the vegetables in to small squares. Fry paratha on both sides till it turns golden brown.
2. Take a shallow pan, add oil. Add onion, green chillies, ginger. Saute for 2 minutes and add the red pepper and green pepper.
3. Saute for 5 minutes, add red chilli powder, garam masala and salt.
4.Cut the paratha in to small squares and add to the pan. Saute till the paratha turns crispy. Add the finely chopped scallions as garnish.
