Kottu Parotta and Parotta is a popular street snack in India that only serves at night. It is similar to the Roti Canai in Malaysia but it was served with a special curry called “Salna” instead of Dhal. According to the locals Chettinad Restaurant serves a good Kottu Parotta and Parotta in Town therefore we went there for dinner. The restaurant is located opposite VOC playground, Palayamkottai. The restaurant opens from 10.30am to 11.30pm and they serve different food in the morning and Parotta at night. The restaurant was crowded when we arrived and it is not safe for the women to dine-in alone at night therefore we planned to take away.
We ask them to make 1 Kottu Parotta by using 3 Parotta for 1 person. It was more than enough for small eaters but if you are big eaters, you can request for more parotta to prepare Kottu Parotta. Kottu Parotta was cooked with eggs, onion, and capsicum on a hot cast iron griddle. They are minced and mixed by repeated pounding using a heavy spatula, the sound of which can be heard for a long distance (only experience people can make a delicious parotta) if you wanted to have some extra kick add salna to it. However, for me, it tasted better without salna.
