Savoury Chapati snack

My Maharashtrian friends have taught me a tasty chapati snack.

Ingredients-4-5 leftover chapatis ,  1 onion finely chopped, 1 small capsicum finely chopped, 1 green chilli finely chopped, 1 tomato chopped ( optional ) 1/ 2' ginger grated, 1/4 tsp haldi,1/4 tsp powder hing, 1/4 tsp mustard seeds,1 tbsp oil, salt to taste, a sprig of kadipatta ( optional ) , some fresh dhania.

Method : Take chapatis & break them into quarters& shred them into tiny pieces in your mixer by giving just 1-2 spins. Put off mixer.

Take a kadhai .Put the oil.in the kadhai to warm on the gas.When the oil is hot,put the mustard seeds.After they have spluttered,add onions & green chilli pieces & grated ginger.Fry till onions become transluscent.Now add haldi & hing.Add capsicum.Mix nicely.Fry all for 1 -2 minutes.Add tomatoes. Mix nicely.Add salt. Next, add the shredded chapati pieces.Mix all in the kadhai .ow,put off gas.

Your chapati snack is ready.You can also add jeera ,udad dal &  curry leaves whilst making the seasoning.Garnish it with coriander.Add a dash of lemon juice  before serving to give a tangy taste.4/5 leftover chapatis can serve 2 persons.

This is upcycling of leftovers to make a tasty snack which is healthy & gets ready fast ! And it helps in minimising of food getting wasted !

In case, one wants to avoid adding tomatoes, one can add lemon juice after gas is put off & mix it. Also can add gated carrots & fry them with capsicum.


  1. I request whoever knows the laddoo version of leftover chapatis -pl post it on this blog sanchayah.

    I have tasted it.It is yummy but I am unsure about the ingredients as also the method.

    Pl post any recipes which you want -of leftovers,recycled etal.All are welcome.

  2. The way I make roti chura laddus from leftover roti/even bajri roti is very simple. Make syrup of jaggery adding a little water to about a cup of jaggery powder and a tsp of ghee, when the syrup is done , add the roti chura to it and make laddus of the same .You can add nuts and cardamom powder too.For teh roti chura it is better to grind it in the mixie to get a proper chura.

  3. Thanks Medha,I will try this when I have leftover rotis.
