Chapati Upma (Leftover Magic :))

This is one of the leftover dish my son (and me too :)) loves.


3 leftover chapatis
1/4 cup chopped onions
3 chopped green chilies
1 tsp lemon juice
salt to taste
  • Break chapati into pieces. Rub chapati pieces with both hands till the pieces are small and soft.
  • Prepare vaggarane. Add green chilies and chopped onions. Saute onions till completely cooked.
  •  Add chapati pieces, add salt and mix well while keeping the heat on low medium.
  • Add lemon juice, mix well.
  • Serve hot.
Note: You have to have leftover chapatis to prepare this dish. Since fresh chapatis are soft, they cannot be broken into pieces.

Just an update!

Hi Friends,

Thank you for all your support and comments. Life has been really hectic for past two months (new job, deadlines and the mundane stuff) and I am unable update my blog on a regular basis. I havent seen the updates I got from cooking blogs I have subscribed to and leaving a comment or trying the dishes seems impossible for now!

I will try my best to keep my blog updated and read the recipe updates by many of my friends (including you) :).

Thanks for your support again.
