Kothu Parotta (literally, minced parotta), is a delicacy popular in the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu. It is made using parotta, egg, meat, and salna, a spicy sauce.
The ingredients are thrown on a hot cast iron griddle lubricated with oil. These are minced and mixed by repeated pounding using a heavy iron spatula, the sound of the which can be heard for a long distance. It is served with onion raita.
Kothu parotta made without the meat and is called as mutai kothu parotta (literally, egg minced parotta). Chicken kothu parotta, beef kothu parotta, and mutton kothu parotta are relished. Like the parottas, it is common in road side shops call thattu kadai.
