Chili Parotta

An easy and yummy way to eat parotta and with no side dish required and ready in no time, you can cook this up any time of the day for a filling and delicious meal.

Frozen parotta - 8 nos (thawed, heated well and cut into bite size pieces)
Onion - 1 big sliced thin
Tomato - 4 sliced thin
Green chilies - 5 slit in two
Cumin seeds - 1/4 tsp
Chili powder - 1.5 tsp
Coriander poweder - 1 tsp
Garam masala - 1 tsp
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
Lime - juice of one
Salt to taste
Cooking oil - 1 tbsp
Butter - 1 tbsp
Curry leaves - a few
Cilantro - handful chopped (for garnish)

In a big kadai pour the oil and the butter and when hot add the cumin seeds and curry leaves followed by the onions and stir it well and wait until it turns pink
Now add the ginger garlic paste and the garam masala
Pu the tomatoes followed by the chili powder and coriander powder and let it cook fully and add salt.
Once the gravy is well done add the chopped cilantro and stir it, leave it for a minute and then add the cut parotta pieces and mix it thoroughly..
Just before removing it from the stove top add the lime juice and serve it hot with curd.
I prefer to use butter along with oil to enhance the flavor of the roti and to give it a home made touch. This quantity will serve upto three people.

I am sending this recipe to Srivalli's Roti Mela...Her blog is and an awesome one too!
