Kothu Paratha

It hardly happens that I have leftover roti or paratha to use next day! But when I have it, I definitely make either crispy masala rotis or this dish called ‘Kothu Paratha’ :) It was my experiment based on the video I watched on youtube channel :P And yes, it worked!
I absolutely loved the taste, texture and flavor! And isn’t it a great idea to make this hot, spicy and yummy dish out of leftovers??!!! Well, I can make fresh parathas to cook this for a quick lunch or evening snack :) Try this out..
