Kottu Parratha

Hi...i was running out of ideas for a weeknight dinner...thinking maybe I should just make a curry and heat up some frozen parathas...and realized that I could do something different and made 'kottu paratha'....and even though it's my first time experimenting, turned out yummy and me and hubby enjoyed it while watching tv ;)

Ingredients :
Served 2

3 frozen parathas..(leave at room temperature for about 15 minutes)- cut into bite size pieces
1 large onion (sliced)
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1 cup of sliced cabbage
1 carrot (grated)
4 cloves garlic (minced)
1 sprig of curry leaves
chilli powder (according to taste)
2 eggs (beaten)

Heat oil and fry mustard seeds and curry leaves. Add sliced onions and garlic and fry till onions are slightly soft.
Add cabbage and carrot...cook a little and add chilli powder...fry for a few minues. Move everything to the sides of the pan and pour a little oil in the middle...pour beaten eggs...once eggs are half fried, scramble all ingredients together and add the paratha pieces and salt...
Fry till cooked and well coated.
