and my today's post is KOTHU PAROTTA using leftover grilled chicken curry....

Kothu parotta, one of the famous and flavorful street food in Tamil Nadu which is prepared using parotta and salna. Both veg and non veg can be prepared and also lots of variations can also be made according to our creativity and taste bud. The sound of mincing parotta in local shops, itself a rhythm for all food lovers.. am I right ? Very easy to prepare and very delicious to taste.. Generally, salna is used for this parotta but sometimes, I use my chicken gravy or non veg kurma too to prepare kothu parotta. It gives a different taste and flavor. Onion raita is an excellent combination for this kothu parotta though some prefers to have it as such...

Here is the recipe of my style kothu parotta.....

Ingredients :

4 Parottas
2 Onions, Finely chopped
1 1/2 Cups Leftover Grilled chicken curry ( You can use any chicken curry or gravy )
1 Big Tomatoes Finely chopped
2 Eggs
Handful of Curry leaves
Salt to taste
2 Tbsp Oil

Method :

Add 1 1/2 Tbsp oil in a Iron tawa and add the chopped onions.

Saute till it turns light brown color and add the chopped tomatoes.

Saute till the tomatoes turns soft and add some curry leaves.

Mix well and add two eggs to the onion mixture.

Scramble the eggs and cook it for a minute.

Now add the leftover curry and mix well.

Meanwhile, tear the parottas into small pieces.

Add the parottas and mix well.

Simmer the flame and keep on mixing till the curry gets coated well with the parottas.

Now take a tall stainless steel glass, turn upside and mince it evenly.

Turn the flame to medium and pour the remaining oil and curry leaves.

Add salt if required as the curry already contains salt.

Cook it till it gets light crispy texture.

Switch off the flame and serve hot.

Serving Options :

Serve hot with Onion Raita.


  1. What a great way to use up leftover chicken. I like that it has lots of onions in it too :)

  2. I love this one.. make it often.. but I add eggs .. gravy is also a nice option if we have some left over.

Sankara Meen Kuzhambu / Red Snapper Fish Curry

Tangy and aromatic flavor of the curry along with a delicious taste of fish, when served with hot rice gives a joyous feeling for a FISH LOVER like me ;) This four letter word makes me drool any time and love it in any form of cuisine.
Generally Meen Kuzhambu is served with hot rice but it tastes more delicious and yummy when served with Hot steaming Idlis for the next day. The more the time, fish swims in the curry, the taste increases. Flavor of the Fish gets blend well with the curry and enhances the taste and aroma, when served it for the next day. 
Sankara fish has its unique taste and flavor and personally, I feel it gives delicious taste when prepared as kuzhambu than fry. Even few Restaurants started serving "Nethi Vacha meen Kuzhambu and Idli" in their menu.  

Are you a Fish Lover ?? Then get ready to Drool ;)

Ingredients :

1/2 Kg Sankara Fish / Red Snapper Fish, Cleaned and Washed2 Big Onions, Finely chopped2 Medium sized Tomatoes, Finely Chopped3 Green chillies, sliced

Ekadesi Kali

Happy Ekadesi Friends!

Vaikunta Ekadesi  is celebrated every year in the month of December or January and particularly on the 11th waxing moon that falls in the Margazhi month. Early morning of this day “the gate to Lord Vishnu 's inner Sanctum” is opened and in tamil we used to call it as “sorga vassal”. And according to our family culture, we used to fast on this  particular day by taking only tiffin items ( No rice allowed). Along with that, Kali is made as offering for god. And the next day of ekadesi is called as Dhuvadesi, on which fast is broken with the preparation of rice and curry with 21 vegetables. My mom prepares karakuzhambu with 21 veggies and according to my in laws place we prepare sambhar with 21 veggies.
