Kottu Parotta (Roti with Spiced Mixed Vegetables)


We went to a local South Indian Restaurant over the weekend and I ordered Kottu Parotta. It was good but too spicy. I wanted to make something with less spices that the kids could eat as well.


While I was making this, I asked my 7 year old if he would make Cucumber Raita and he did. All by himself, from the fridge to the table :)


What you’ll need:

  • Cumin Seeds – 1 tsp
  • Onion – 1 small to medium
