Mushroom Kothu Parotta / Mushroom Kothu Chappathi

Kothu parotta is a local street food that every South Indian loves. I have posted a version of kothu chapathi which is made with eggs before and this one is made with my favorite mushrooms! My husband and me enjoyed eating this version of kothu parotta. You can make this with left over roti or even poori. This is a very easy and simple recipe (without salna) that you can make quickly and enjoy.

  • Left over paratha / chapathi - 5 
  • Button Mushrooms - 1 pack
  • Onion - 1, large chopped
  • Tomato - 2 large, chopped
  • Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
  • Cumin powder - 1 tsp
  • Red chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Coriander powder - 1 tsp
  • Green chilli - 2, slit

Mushroom Kothu Parotta

1. Tear the left over paratha or chapathi into small pieces. Or cut using scissors. Set aside. Clean and chop the mushrooms.
2. Heat the oil in a pan, add the mustard seeds, urad dal and curry leaves. 

3. When the mustard seeds splutter, add the chopped onions and green chilli. Saute the onions until they turn translucent.
4. Then add the ginger garlic paste. Saute until the raw smell leaves.

5. Add the chopped tomatoes and cook the tomatoes for 3-5 minutes. 
6. When the tomatoes are cooked, add the cumin powder, coriander powder and red chilli powder. Mix well and cook for a couple of minutes. Add salt.

7. Add the chopped mushrooms and mix in with the gravy. You need not add any water to this since the mushrooms will leave some water while cooking. Cover and cook the mushrooms for 5-6  minutes.
8. Add the chopped chappathi and mix in with the mushroom curry.
9. Add chopped coriander leaves and switch off the flame.
