Malabar Parotta

Malabar Parotta

We can see making this Parotta at all small tea shops ,bus stands and railway stations in Kerala even in midnight.I saw people making the dough hitting ,beating,kneading to make the dough soft.
Parotta is made with all purpose flour or maida.

This is my son’s favorite dish. I was planning to make Parotta with wheat flour and maida.i used half maida and half atta.

We can have the Parotta with any side dishes like veg Kuruma or any other  curry of your choice.
