Quick Muttai Parotta

Muttai means Egg in Tamil. This is a very common dish sold by the road side vendors. I have already blogged about this ( , but this is a short cut way to do it. This recipe does not require chalna and can be done in 15 minutes. Good for a quick snack or dinner. I could not take a good picture as my hubby was already starving.Will update with a nice picture later.

Frozen Parotta- 2
eggs- 2
onion- 3/4(medium,sliced)
ginger garlic paste- 1/2 tsp
curry leaves- few
turmeric powder- 1/4 tsp
green chillies- 2(chopped)
tomato- 1(medium,chopped)
chicken curry powder- 1 1/2 tsp
chilli powder- 1/4 tsp
pepper- little less than 1/2 tsp
corriander leaves

Heat tawa and cook parotta as per package directions. cool and tear it into small pieces. Heat oil in kadai and fry onions,ginger garlic paste,chillies,turmeric and curry leaves. When the onion turns golden brown, add tomato and all the masala powders. Cook until raw smell goes. Move this to the side of the kadai . Crack and pour eggs in the kadai. When it is 3/4 th done, add parotta and mix well. Add required salt. Using two spatulas mince the parottas and cook till done. Finally add corriander leaves and pepper. Blend well and serve with onion raitha.
