Kothu Parotta recipe – Chicken Egg Parotta recipe – Chicken Kothu

Kothu Parotta is a popular South Indian street food delicacy. Kothu Parotta is mostly sold at small restaurants or by street vendors and is popular in Kerala and Tamil Nadu. Making kothu parotta is very easy if using store bought parottas. Making parottas from scratch can be time consuming, so either you can make it from scratch or go with the effortless way of using the store bought parottas.

  • I have used frozen or ready made parotta which is easy and effortless. But If you want, you can make it from scratch
  • Adjust green chili, red chili powder and pepper powder (Take care not to add too much of these three. Also avoid green chili for kids)
  • you could use leftover chicken curry instead of cooking the chicken separately. Heat up the chicken curry before use
