Kothu Chapathi (From Leftover Chapathi)

Whenever we make chapathi, most of the times we have 2 or 3 leftover chapathis. It happens very commonly in Indian household. So today i'm going to share a recipe for leftover chapathis. It is called kothu chapathi. It can be served either as a breakfast or pack for kid lunch boxes.
Kothu Chapathi
The kothu parotta is a very popular street food in South India. The parotta which is served at restaurants is usualy made from maida flour. But we are going to make this kothu parotta recipe using wheat flour. So its very healthy and tasty. I have used eggs for this recipe. So vegetarians, you can skip the egg in this recipe. Instead of egg you can add any kurma gravy to this recipe, but with egg its tastes very yummy.
Kothu Chapathi

  • 2 Chapathi
  • 1 piece Cinnamon stick
  • 3 cloves
  • 1/2 tsp Fennel seeds
  • 1 Onion, chopped lengthwise
  • 3 Green Chillies, slit
  • 2 Tomato, medium sized, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp Chilly powder
  • 1 tsp Garam Masala
  • 1 tsp pepper powder
  • 2 Eggs
  • Few Curry and Coriander leaves
  • Salt
  • Oil


  • Beat eggs in a bowl and tear or cut the chapathi into small pieces.
  • Heat oil in kadai add cinnamon, cloves and fennel seedsand fry.
  • Add Onions, green chillies and curry leaves and saute till onions turns light brown in colour.
  • Add the chopped tomatoes and saute.
  • Add ginger garlic paste and the spice powders and cook till the raw smell goes off. If needed sprinkle little water to avoid burning.
  • Next add the beaten eggs and mix.
  • Add the chapathi pieces and mix well and cook till the eggs are cooked.
