With paneer there are so many Tiffin varieties. But this paneer chilli kothu parotta is the most fulfilled one with a divine taste. There is no need for a side dish as this is a wholesome food. However, curd salad with cucumber, carrot, onion and tomato is ok with this if any side dish is needed. This dish can be prepared with left over parottas.

  1. looks yummy,why microwave the parottas for 20 mts mano akka?it is left over only know?

  2. thanks for posting the receipe aunty, i am planning to try this on wednesday night. coz i have guests that day. i will come back to u with the feedback.

  3. Dear Asiya!

    The parottas become harder next day if we purchase outside and it will be difficult to cut them in to stripes. If we heat them, then they become soft and it will be easier to cut them in to desired shapes.

  4. Hope you will make it a success Selvi!
