It’s back, Leftover chapati recipe is back. Remember I never had a better idea than turning the leftover chapati in to a delicious payasam which I still admire so much but this time a savory food that has come up.
Speaking of this colorful leftover chapati upma it has plenty of vegetables that are chopped as an inch length of thin strips. I would love to add vegetables of all colors to this upma which attracts the kids and adults at the same time. When you heat little oil in the pan with cumin seeds and get them nice sizzling, and then toss in those colorful strips of vegetables and watch them sizzle and slowly turn in to perfect crunchy sauteed veggies right before your eyes…that’s when you know the truth of how wonderful vegetable colors are.
You really need to chop the leftover chapati for this..Oh Didn’t I mention it already? I was lost in colorful vegetables saga. Now let me tell you, how you can get the chapati’s ready for it’s upma form. Stalk the leftover chapatis one over the other and using a sharp knife cut them in quarters. Again cut each of this quarter to halves. Now you can easily make strips out of the leftover chapatis that have same length as veggies.
When the sauteed vegetables get the nice coating of spices, include these left over chapati strips and give a nice stir. And a healthy, delicious way of using left over chapati in the form of upma is successful.
You can make leftover chapati upma in the evening when kids are back from school and not in a mood to eat the same food that they had in the morning. With lots of vegetables it’s going to be healthy snack too.
