Garnish with coriander leaves and drizzle few drops of lemon juice on top. Serve hot with raw onion rings! Enjoy this delectable street food !!

Notes :-
# You can use home-made or store bought ready made parottas. I have used store bought parottas, available at Indian stores in the freezer section.
# I have used veg salna which I had it handy. You can use any salna variety. You can even include leftover chicken or mutton gravy for extra flavor.
# If you skip salna, the dish will be very dry. 
# For Veg version - skip eggs, use vegetables of your choice and follow the procedure.
# Adjust the spice levels based on the salna or gravy you use. As the gravy itself will have masala.  
# Don't miss the garnishing part, coriander leaves, lemon juice and onions. It definitely adds a punch to the dish.
