Parotta - Tamil Nadu Style | Step by step pictures

Parotta - Tamil Nadu Style
Parotta is a very popular dish in Tamil Nadu.  It is a layered flat South Indian bread and is served with Kurma or Salna. I love parotta in any form and I have already  posted Vegetable Kothu parotta, Egg kothu parotta, Dry kothu parotta - Saravana Bhavan style. Parotta is time consuming and requires some practice especially to get the layers in parotta. It also needs lot of oil for preparation. Beginners can try with very less quantity. Please check below for step by step instructions and pictures for preparing Tamil Nadu Style Parotta recipe.
