Chilli Parotta Recipe | Restaurant Style Chilli Parotta

Chilli Parotha, Parotta, Quick Chilli Parotta, Easy Chilli Paratha

Parotta a word which makes our eye expand and mouthwatering. This is most popular street food in south india. We could see parotta shops almost in all the streets, this is one of the ever craving food for most of us. Parottas are layered bread mostly made from maida which is a kind of starch taken out from wheat, arrowroot or tapioca. We cant deny the fact that it gives much work to our digestive organ as it takes longer to digest, so better to take it 3/4 hours before sleep or do some physical activity when you consume maida. However we can make parotta using wheat also, it will not be very soft but for making this dish even wheat parotta will taste very good.







Chilli parotta is believed to be originated from arya bhavan restaurant in madurai, which is a brilliant innovation which many of us fall for. Adding vegetables and spices makes this dish wholesome which can be had with plain raita. This is one of my default order in the restaurants. You can add any vegetables like carrot, beans, peas, cauliflower in this recipe.

Note:
  • Add chilli powder and green chillis according to the spiciness you require, we usually prefer medium spicy.
  • Adding curry leaves atlast gives a excellent aroma and taste to the dish and it takes to the next level
  • Two pinch of sugar gives a very very mild sweetness, if you dont prefer ignore it. 
  • As onion and tomato is fried well and grounded you dont have to cook the masala for long. If you dont want to grind it you can cook it until it mashes keep it separately and then follow from step 4
  • Crunchy onion and capsicum will go very well with parotta so dont over fry them.
