KERALA PAROTTA

Parotta is one favourite item for everyone especially for Keralites so they can't avoid it from their life. It can be used as breakfast, lunch and dinner. It was getting only from hotels earlier but now we are making it from houses. It is considering as the main item when guests come home. Usually it will be available in the evening time. We are using Maida for making this and it helps to get soft and layered Parotta. Health conscious people can use Wheat Flour to make this. We are using more quantity of Oil to make this so it is not that much good for health. We can make it very easily at home with practicing. I am making Parotta in my home when I am free and I was facing difficulties to make Parotta first time but now I can do it well without any difficulties. I would like to have this with any Chicken dishes. Here, I made completely vegetarian Parotta so I haven't used Milk and Egg. This is completely Kerala style layered Parotta.
