Kothu parotta

Kothu parotta has been on my mind for ages. This is the ultimate street food you can get, in the parts of the world! This is the ultimate choice for fast food or street food. I have always had a great passion for parotta. When you walk on our streets, more in particular, the market places, you can for sure, see many parotta wala on the push carts. 

I have always longed to eat in such places. But my mom always never allow to eat anything from the street or road side shop because of the hygienic conditions. I have never eaten from any such shop. So i decided to try to do on my own. One day my friend told me about kothu parotta that she had tried and it came out well. So i got recipe from her and I changed some ingredients from that and made my own. 

Thanks a lot, My friend we had a lovely  kothu parotta.
