Leftovers overhauled - Kothu Porotta

Porottas are sometimes the best things to find as leftovers. Unless it is Pizza all cold after sitting in the fridge atleast 8 hours. The combination of piping hot coffee(black) and almost frozen pizza slices is my special favourite....

Don't give me that look.

By the way, before I started salivating about pizza, I was talking about porottas. Good old Kerala porottas, not to be mistaken for Parathas, paranthas etc..

Just heat a frying pan, add 1 tsp of oil, saute 1 onion, 2 green chillies, 1 tomato, saute, add a dash of soy sauce and tomato sauce, 2 eggs, scramble well, add 2 porottas distinegrated by hand and then finally add some crushed pepper.

It is amazing.

I sometimes also make nice and spicy omelettes, heat the whole porottas and have Mott-porott a-la Mohan uncle.He was an old friend and colleague of our dad and one of our sweetest neighbors in Dukhan. Sadly,he is no more . He used to love making Mott porott and named it too.
