Trivia Tadka

Kothu Parottais a popular street food across Tamil Nadu. It’s cooked with left over parottas (a layered paratha made with maida), which are shredded and cooking with lots of sautéed onions and vegetables. Kothu Parottas are perfect as a breakfast delicacy or to kill that 4 pm hunger pang. 


  • Parotta (2-3)
  • Onion, sliced (1)
  • Tomato, finely chopped (1)
  • Green chillies (2-3)
  • MTR Garam Masala (1 tsp)
  • Mustard seeds (sarson) (1 tsp)
  • Curry leaves (kadi patta) (2-3)
  • Mint leaves (pudina patta) (3-4)
  • Green coriander (haradhania), chopped (1 tbsp)
  • Oil (2 tbsp)
  • Salt (to taste )


  • Shred the parottas into small pieces or strips, and keep them aside in a plate.
