Kothu Roti - Kothu Parota

Kothu Parota had been my favourite thing to eat from a restaurant located just outside our college. Have eaten many lunches there especially in the final year of college. I have made a Kothu Roti (made with Roti/Chapatti). You can use the same recipe and substitute Layered Parota and make Kothu Parota as well. Parota recipe can be found here.


Onions 2
Green Pepper 1
Yellow pepper 1
Green beans a few
Carrots 2 grated
Green peas 1/4 cup
Corn 1/4 cup
Green chilli 4
Kashmiri Red Chilli powder 2 tsp
Garam Masala 1 tsp
Turmeric 1/2 tsp
Jeera/Cumin 1 tsp

Chapatti 10

(Wheat flour 2.5 cups, salt and water)

Method of Preparation

1. Heat a little oil in a pan. Add cumin.

2. When it sizzles, add the onions and peppers. Saute for a couple of minutes.

3. Grate carrots and add to it.

4. Add chopped green beans.

5. Microwave peas and corn and add to this.

6. Add chilli powder, garam masala, turmeric and salt. Mix everything together.Cook till the veggies are cooked.

7. Make chappatti as usual. (Take flour in a bowl. Add salt. Add enough water and make a soft dough. Split into 10 balls. Roll them into circles using rolling pin dusting with more flour as required. Cook on both sides on a pan).

8. Cool it a little and then chop into smaller pieces. You can optionally tear it with hand for a rustic look.

9. Run your fingers thru the chopped chapatti to make sure that there are no bits sticking together.

10. Mix this with the veggies prepared.

Serve with some raita.
