Tenkasi Chilli Parota

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.


Onion1no.(medium size)
Tomato 3nos.(medium size)
Ginger&garlic paste 2tsp
Green chilly3nos.
Red chilly powder1/2tsp
Coriander powder1tsp
Garam masala powder1/4tsp
Fennel seeds1/2tsp
Curry leaves2sprigs
Coriander leavesto garnish
Salt to taste
Oil 3tbs


                 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.
Heat a pan with oil and crackle the fennel seeds and saute the onions and green chillies till transparent.Add the ginger and garlic paste and fry for a minute,follows the tomatoes and cook it mushy.
Now add in all the powder,give a mix and add the ground paste,salt.Add little water and let it boil it becomes thick.
Now add the parota pieces and mix well and keep it in the low flame for 5 minutes,in between stir it for couple of times.Garnish it with coriander leaves.
Enjoy it warm with onion raitha.

  • 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.
