The Origin of Kothu Parotta

Believed to have originated in the 1970s in Trincomalee or Batticaloa, the eastern province of Sri Lanka, kothu parotta witnessed a humble beginning. 

As a creative method to utilise the leftover food and prevent food wastage, it was originally made from Godhamba rotis that would be chopped into tiny strips and blended with a range of spices, eggs, meat, or fried vegetables to make a delectable dish. 

While some people believe that the delightful kothu parotta was invented in Sri Lanka, others believe it originated in Madurai, Tamil Nadu, which has emerged as one of the most popular food cities in India. 

Being a dish quite popular in India, it has to have variations. If you’re not a purist and appreciate creativity, you will probably like mutton, paneer, and even prawn-style kothu paratha. 

The actual origins of kothu parotta are still up for debate. But people hardly care about it when they order it from street food vendors and even some fast food joints that have joined the kothu bandwagon.
