Bake parotta. does the name seem odd to you? well its a simple version of fried parotta, which is very easy and simple to make. You can have it with any gravy but today I made this capsicum and chiken gravy which is a no onion and no garlic gravy. When you bored of making the same chappati or parotta for gravy do try this recipe. This combo goes directly to Pari's Combo Event.

Beat the egg well. In a big bowl put the flour, egg, salt and baking powder. Knead the dough with coconut milk. This recipe requires about 3/4 of teacup coconut milk.
Knead well into a soft dough. Divide into 10 equal parts. If you want to make smaller parottas divide tinto 15 parts. Apply oil on it  and allow to rest for an hour or so.
On a flat plate take a piece of dough and thinly roll it out. Apply little oil and fold it like a n envelope.
Again roll it out and deep fry.
