Today is the fourth day of blogging marathon and recipe is Chilli Parota.Chilli parota is a popular food item which is available from street side shops to restaurants.I made this one for yesterday dinner with frozen parotas and this is one of my family's favorite.It can be made easily with the frozen parotas.This is a very popular food item in Tenkasi, a town which is in Tirunelveli District.
|Red chilly powder||1/2tsp|
|Garam masala powder||1/4tsp|
|Coriander leaves||to garnish|
Cut the parotas into small size pieces and fry it with a tsp of oil in a dosa griddle and grind the coconut with cashews to a fine paste and keep aside.
- Here I used kashmiri red chilly powder to avoid food color.
- Originally the parotas are deep fried in the oil and added but due to high calories I avoid that step instead,saute the parota pieces in the griddle in a medium flame or keep it in the toaster oven for 5 minutes to get crispy.
- Garam masala powder can be substituted with chicken or mutton masala powder.
- For deep frying the parotas,make a batter with maida,salt,ginger&garlic paste,garam masala powder and water to a thin batter.Dip the parotas strips in the batter and deep fry it in the oil in a medium flame.
