CHILLI PAROTTA:

6 years back, I had this chilli parotta in an Indian restaurant. After returning back to home, I tried this with my ingredients as well as a little bit of imagination and to my delight, it turned out even better than the one I have tasted. In restaurants, they use stiff parottas without beating them to a fluffy texture. Soft parottas with nice layers yield a better dish.
