Vengaya Parotta is a special dish made for Son in laws in the coastal district of Nagapattinam. It is  deep fried n served with Chicken or Mutton gravy. Since this is a special dish this can be had only during special occasions as it is loaded with calories. Pearl onions or small onions are used in this dish. If not you can also use normal onions too. Sending this to Healing food- Onion guest hosted by Priya event by Siri
