Chilli -Vegetable kothu parotta

Parotta is a very famous street food in Tamil Nadu. In cities and small towns you will see road side stalls selling parotta for dinner. Parotta is made with all purpose flour (Maida) and Vanaspathi. In health aspects  its not so healthy ,but its one of the tastiest street foods you will ever have.

This chili parota recipe is a variation on the famous kothu parotta recipe. If you visit South Tamil Nadu make it a point to try kothu parotta. It will not be difficult to find the really popular shops, trust me.

This is a simple recipe and you can make it in no time. I used frozen parottas brought from the Indian grocery store.

Preparation time:10 min
Cooking time:15 min


  • 5 small Parottas (I used frozen ones).
  • 1 small Onion.
  • 1/2 inch ginger piece.
  • 1 carrot.
  • 1/2 Jalapeno pepper/2 slit green chilies.
  • 1 small red bell pepper(can be substituted with green peppers also).
  • Small amount of Shredded Cabbage- For crunch.
  • 1/2 tsp Chilli Chicken Masala / 1/2 tsp Chili Powder.
  • 2 tbsp oil .
  • 1/2 lemon squeezed.
  • Salt as required.
  • Coriander for garnishing.


  • If you use frozen parottas ones heat them in them a tawa / flat top until golden brown on both sides.
  • Cool them and shred them into bite size pieces using your hands.
  • If you use fresh ones just shred them.
  • Julienne the veggies.
  • Heat oil in a frying pan,.
  • Add ginger ,add onion and saute them until translucent.

  • Add the vegetables and saute them for 5 min.
  • Now add the Chili Chicken Masala / Chili powder and saute it for 5 sec.
  • Add little bit of water and salt.
  • Add the shredded parotta pieces and toss well .
  • Finally add the shredded cabbage and saute for 2 mins.

  • Turn off the heat add the lemon juice and toss well.
  • Serve hot garnished with coriander leaves.


  • Add the right amount of water. If you add too much water it will make the dish soggy. If its too little then the dish will be dry.
  • If you don't have Veggies just onion,ginger and masala will also be good .
