Quick Muttai Parotta

Muttai means Egg in Tamil. This is a very common dish sold by the road side vendors. I have already blogged about this ( , but this is a short cut way to do it. This recipe does not require chalna and can be done in 15 minutes. Good for a quick snack or dinner. I could not take a good picture as my hubby was already starving.Will update with a nice picture later.
Frozen Parotta- 2
eggs- 2
onion- 3/4(medium,sliced)
ginger garlic paste- 1/2 tsp
curry leaves- few
turmeric powder- 1/4 tsp
green chillies- 2(chopped)
tomato- 1(medium,chopped)
chicken curry powder- 1 1/2 tsp
chilli powder- 1/4 tsp
pepper- little less than 1/2 tsp
corriander leaves
Heat tawa and cook parotta as per package directions. cool and tear it into small pieces. Heat oil in kadai and fry onions,ginger garlic paste,chillies,turmeric and curry leaves. When the onion turns golden brown, add tomato and all the masala powders. Cook until raw smell goes. Move this to the side of the kadai . Crack and pour eggs in the kadai. When it is 3/4 th done, add parotta and mix well. Add required salt. Using two spatulas mince the parottas and cook till done. Finally add corriander leaves and pepper. Blend well and serve with onion raitha.

hey kribha, did u use malaysian paratha? I would like to try this, without the egg though (but then it won't be muttai parotha ;-)
I've tasted kothu paratha in a restaurant nearby, it is on similar lines with some gravy.

Kribha said...

Yes Richa, I did use malaysian Paratha.BTW, kothu paratha and muttai paratha are same. I have blogged the recipe for kothu paratha already. In that I used 'chalna'which is the gravy normally used to make this dish. Try it. You will surely like it.

Kribha said...

Actually I used chicken curry powder to skip the stage of preparing chalna. If you post your version, I would love to try that too.

Nice recipe,Kribha.I tried same kind of dish from the street vendors in kerala.I liked it very much.Thank you for the nice recipe.

Kribha said...

Hey Surya,
Would you post way of doing it? I'd like to try the kerala version.

looks amazing!!
very new to me but a simple and elegant recipe, have to try

Kribha said...

Welcome here Padmaja. Just visited your blog. I know being a working mom you would want easy recipes. Well, I'm sure you won't be disappointed by this one. Believe me, it takes only 15 to 20 minutes maximum. As you do the onion masala base you can cook parotto's and tear into pieces. Also,When you cook in in a fairly high flame it is really done so fast.Hope you give it a try.

Reena said...

kribha, i think this is my first time here. i love this kothu porotta. i think that's what it is called in kerala. looks easy and tasty.

Kribha said...

Hi Reena, Welcome here.Glad that you like it too. I never knew that it is famous in kerala too.
