Egg Kothu Parotta and a link to madurai kothu parotta stall

Kothu parotta is a very famous street food delicacy in Tamil nadu .It is made up of scrambled egg,parottas and salna.It was in my mind ,for many days.Today only i got the oppurtunity to prepare it,as I was too tired to prepare any other dinner.I had some parottas leftover in my freezer.Unfortunately, I didnt have salna.So prepared only with eggs.It came out well.The basic method I am giving.We can alter the preparation ,according to ur taste buds.Also I have given the link ,of a street side shop ,preparing kothu parotta in Madurai.
