For my people will live as long as trees...For they are people blessed by the Lord,and their children too, will be blessed. I will answer them before they even call to me. While they are still talking about their needs,I will go ahead and answer their prayers! Isaiah 65:22-24

Minced meat kothu parotta!!

Minced meat kothu parotta!!
Chappatis (or tortillas) - 7( cubed), onion (big) - 1, finely chopped, tomato - 1,chopped, green chillies - 4, finely chopped, ginger-garlic paste - 2 tsp, chilli pwd - 1 tsp, turmeric pwd - 1/4 tsp, eggs - 3( scrambled adding just salt & pepper pwd), coriander leaves - a handful,chopped, minced meat - 300 gms, salt to taste, oil - 3 tbsp.

Heat oil in a pan & fry the onions till golden. Then add the ginger-garlic paste, chilli pwd, turmeric pwd ,tomato & salt & stir fry till the masala loses its raw smell. Now add the meat & coriander leaves & stir till the meat is well coated with the masala. Add 1/4 cup of water & cook till the meat is done & the mixture has also dried up considerably.Then add the scrambled egg & chopped chappatis & mix well & heat through till everything is well blended. Garnish with some chopped green chillies & coriander leaves & a dash of lime juice.

This is what i had for lunch today!I do this often at home! Very easy to put together , especially when you have the store bought tortillas or rotis on hand! This dish is very popular in almost all the teashops& tiny eating places near the bus stands etc in Tamil Nadu, but you will never find it in proper restaurants!!

Recipe source: My friend'C'!;)) This is a popular tamilian streetfood

A great dish! You do get it at many restaurants; Buharis in madras have been serving it for decades as "madras egg parotta". Most clubs in Madras have it on the menu......Kothu parotta is now a nain stream dish !!
