Kothu Chapati

Kothu means chopped roti in Tamil. Kothu chapati is made with chopped chapati, spices and veggies. When I moved to Bangalore for my first job I came across this tasty dish. It was a regular on the menu in the Dosa corners. However parathas where used instead of chapatis . 

It’s the best way to use up left over chapatis. You can ready in an instant and doesn’t really need any special ingredient.  You can optionally use egg ,grated paneer /cheese  and chicken .

Chapati – 2 medium sized
Onion -1
Tomato -1
Green chilies – 1 slit
Ginger garlic paste – 2 tsp
Turmeric Powder – 1 tsp
Red chili powder -2 tsp
Cumin Powder – 2 tsp
Grated Paneer
Salt to taste
Coriander leaves for garnish
1.       Chop the left over chapatis .
2.       Heat oil in a wok. Sauté onions .To this add green chilies
3.       Add ginger garlic paste, turmeric powder, red chili powder and cumin powder.
4.       Add the chopped chapati.
5.       Grate paneer over it
6.       Garnish with coriander leaves.
