Chilli Parotta - a classic spicy street-side dish from Tamil Nadu. Parotta cut into bite-sized pieces are tossed with onion, mixed peppers and spices. This delicious dish gets ready in 15 minutes and doesn't involve any grinding or complex cooking process. It makes a quick evening snack or dinner on lazy days and one of the best options to use up leftover parottas.

Adjust spices to suit your preference.
I have used frozen parotta, thawed and cooked as per instructions on the packet. You can use leftover parotta.
You can use only green peppers, I have used mixed peppers to make it more colourful and appealing.
I've used ginger-garlic paste, you can swap it with either finely chopped or crushed.
Adding a pinch of salt to onions helps bring the moisture out of onions and help them cook faster.
