There is always 3-4 rotis leftovers at the end of the week. So I have make them gujju style dish called vaghariyu but got bored with same recipe so was looking to try new recipe where I can use my leftover rotis. In childhood mom used to roll up and deep fry those rolls or leave it match stick shapes and deep fry it but bachpan is gone and now all this healthy funda came in life so frying is not that much happening in the house, once a while I do fry puris as per my kids demand, which is now a days every weekend demand and I make an excuse and not doing it. Anyway so back to leftovers, found this delicious way to use rotis and tried it and have to share it with you all. I used my 3 left overs rotis which was two days old but after marrying in gravy and masala didn't feel like I am eating days old rotis. So next time you have leftover rotis or parathas use it this way.
3 leftover rotis – bite size pieces
1 tsp. ginger, garlic and chili paste
½ chopped onion
1 tbsp. tomato paste
Few curry leaves
½ tsp. mustard seeds
Salt as per taste
1 tsp. turmeric powder
1 tsp. cumin –coriander powder
2 tsp. oil
Few fresh chopped coriander leaves
1 to 1 and ½ cup water, depend upon how old and dry your rotis are , add water as per that
In a pan , add oil. Add mustard seeds, when it crackles, add onions in it and cook till its little pink.
Add curry leaves, then add ginger, garlic, and chili paste along with tomato puree, cook for a minute.
Now add both powder masala and salt and mix it, add chopped rotis along with water. Again depend upon how dry your rotis are, adjust the water.
Cook on low flame till water is gone and roti become soft.
