Chapati upma

Leftover chapati-4-6  cut to pieces

Oil-2 Tablespoon

Mustard seeds-1 teaspoon

Urad Dal-1 teaspoon

Green chilies-1-2 chopped fine (I have used orange)

Onion-1 small chopped fine

Ginger-1 inch chopped fine

Curry leaves- a few

Coriander leaves-chopped to garnish


Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds and urad dal. When mustard starts spluttering and urad changes color to golden brown, put in the curry leaves, onions, ginger and green chilies. Saute them until onion changes color. Add salt to taste. Mix in the chapati pieces until it is nicely coated in the oil and all the ingredients. Check and adjust salt. Garnish with chopped coriander leaves. Switch off the stove. Your chapati upma is ready. Enjoy it with a hot cup of tea or coffee.


1. You can saute the chapati longer for a crispier upma or you can

   take it of the stove once they become coated with the ingredients     for a softer touch.

2. Adding grated or chopped coconuts will give a nice crunch.

3. Add in one or two scrambled eggs into this and you have
