Kothu Parotta & Pachidi

Yes...You might have guessed it right. Kothu parotta is my next post. With parottas and chalna in hand what better dish can I think of? So, here you go ...the recipe of my all time favorite.

cooked parotta- 3
onion- 1
ginger garlic paste- 1tsp
green chillies-3
turmeric- 1/4 tsp
curry leaves
chalna- 1 cup
Heat oil in kadai and fry pattai and cloves. Then add onions, ginger garlic paste, chillies,turmeric & curry leaves.When the onion gets cooked add tomato. saute for sometime. Then add parotta and fry for a minute. Now add eggs,salt and pepper. Blend everything together. When the egg is almost done add chalna and break eveything into small pieces using two spatulas. Check for seasonings. Finally add corriander leaves.

Hi Shanti,
A warm welcome to you dear. Chalna or Salna is a coconut based watery chicken gravy. It is not thick like the kurma and is usually somewhat brown in color.I have posted the recipe for chalna in my blog. Check out the following link. Try it out sometime. You will surely like it.

Have a great day and do come back for more.
