Vegetable Kothu Parotta

First I posted Parotta, then came Salna and today obviously it has to be Kothu Parotta right? It’s a great left over recipe. You need both the parotta and salna for this recipe along with other veggies. I tried to prepare it like the Saravana Bhavan Style Kothu Parotta where they add garbanzo beans and bell peppers to this recipe. I love the crunchiness from the veggies  and the flavor from salna makes is delicious.

Adding garbanzo beans is completely optional. I love it in this recipe and I went with the canned one. In the street side shops you can find the cook using two sharp laddles and chopping the parotta. As I mentioned I love to watch how they do the veechu, similarly I love to watching chopping action too. I didn’t do that home. I crumbled and made small pieces with hand. :-) Without any further delay, here is the recipe…
