About us Valeriana recipe cuisine: A culinary trip to Sri Lanka
Kottu Rotu means translated chopped bread. “Roti” is an unleavened, flat pita bread made of whole meal flour and wheat. Roti is also very famous and common in Indian cuisine, also known as "chapati". You've probably eaten this tasty pita bread as a side dish to a delicious curry!
- 2-3 Tamil pita breads (roti)
- 1 leek
- 2 carrots
- 2 onions
- 3 garlic cloves
- 5 eggs
- Neutral oil
- Spices: salt, pepper, chili powder, optional: grounded coriander
- First wash the vegetables. Then add the carrots, the onions, the garlic and finally peel the leak and cut them into small pieces.
- Meanwhile heat the pan, add some oil and lightly fry the vegetables. Flavour the vegetables with salt, pepper and chilli powder.
- Cut the pita bread in thin stripes
- Next, crack the eggs and add them to the pan and brown with the vegetables. Constant stirring helps things from sticking to the pan.
- Lastly, the pita bread stripes are added
- Spice if needed
It’s important that the vegetables are only briefly fried, and the dish is served hot. Traditionally, a curry is served with Kottu Roti, for example a chicken or a vegetable. It is common at festivals. It is most eaten at parties and birthday celebrations. So, it's a great dish for your next family-and friends gathering.
