Chapati Upma

srividya76's picture
This is a dish prepared with leftover chapathis. Normally leftover chapathis tend to become a bit hard and they don’t taste as good as the fresh ones so we throw them. If it is converted to upma it tastes great.
  Chapati 3
  Onion 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Tomatoes 2 (scoop out theseed)
  Green chillies 3
  Asafoetida 1 Pinch
  Turmeric 1 Pinch
  Mustard seeds 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Urad dal 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Coconut 1 1⁄2 Tablespoon
  Oil/Ghee 2 Teaspoon
  Sugar 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Coriander leaves 1 Tablespoon
  Salt To Taste

Cut chapathis into as small pieces as possible. Please do not powder them.
Heat oil/ghee and add mustard seeds and urad daal. When mustard starts popping and daal becomes slightly brownish, add curry leaves, green chilles and asafoetida. Add onion and turmeric. Fry till onions turn translucent and then add tomatoes and saute it.
Add chapathi pieces (if chapathi is very hard, sprinkle some water), salt and sugar. Mix all ingredients for sometime (do not fry for a long time, otherwise the chapathi pieces become hard).
Garnish with coconut and chopped coriander leaves. Mix well.
Serve hot.
