Kothu Parotta just means it’s ‘minced’ or ‘beaten-up’ Parotta…and there are a lot of variations to this wonderful dish that you can just whip up and impress everyone. The first time I had this dish was at a small little road-side shop in Trivandrum (aka Thiruvananthapuram), though origianally from Tamil Nadu! Enjoy this wonderful dish from my past:) Perfect for breakfast, brunch or just a snack.
