Kothu parotta or chilli parotta is my family’s favourite dish. It’s a complete dish, so I generally make for school tiffin and breakfast.
Few days back, I had made kothu parotta for breakfast and school tiffin. Usually I add boiled chickpeas for the protein part of the recipe. Since, I had not soaked chickpeas, I had to think of some other option. I had Paneer in the fridge and as I was thinking, I got this idea of making Paneer Tikka Kothu Parotta.
The recipe is much similar to Panner Tikka Fried Rice which I have posted long back.
Instead of rice, I have added parotta pieces.
I am glad that I made this dish as it was much liked and appreciated by my family and friends. Hope you all would like it too:)
