This is a dish prepared with leftover chapathis. Normally leftover chapathis tend to become a bit hard and
they dont 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.
