Chicken Kothu Parotta

One thing that I miss the most about Chennai is the food. Be it our simple bakery-style puffs or our newly evolved shawarmas or our authentic chettinadu cuisine everything about Chennai smells good when it comes to food. I am totally missing the hot food that we get in Namma chennai. The only option that we have here is making them at home. Be it parottas or biryanis or a simple comforting sambar saadam, all has to be done at home. Last week we had this sudden craving for kothu parottas, like the ones you get from the roadsides back in Chennai, filled with eggs and chicken. I tried replicating it at home and it was a big hit with the huss.

~*What U Need*~
Parottas - 5, shredded
Onion - 1, large, chopped
Tomato - 1 medium, chopped
Eggs - 2
Cooked Chicken - 3/4 cup
Fennel or saunf seeds - 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves - 2 sprigs
Green chilli - 2, chopped
Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Coriander powder - 2 tsp
Garam masala - 1/2 tsp
Chicken curry powder - 1 tsp
Oil, salt

How I Made it:
Shred the parotta finely. Heat oil in a kadai, add the fennel seeds and allow to brown. Add onions and saute. Add the green chilli and curry leaves and fry till onions turn soft. Add the tomatoes and saute till oil separates. Move this to the side of the pan and scramble the eggs at high heat. Once scrambled, mix the egg with the onion mixture. Next add the shredded chilli chicken pieces and mix well. Add the spice powders and some water and mix till you get a masala. Set the flame to high, add the parotta pieces and keep folding till the parotta is coated with the masala and the mixture dries a bit. Remove from flame.

Serve hot with onion raitha!!!

So thats it Folks...
