Kothu Chappathi

Just happenned to see this in vijay tv last week... tried it and and it came out very well. So I thought I could share it with u all too... This is my entry to WBB #15 'leftovers' hosted by Nanditha of Saffron trail.


Ingredients

left over or fresh Chappathis- 4 cut into squares
onion-1 chopped lengthwise
tomatoes -1 medium sized chopped finely
tomato sauce- 1 tsp
capsicum - 1 small chopped into squares or lengthwise
green chillies- 1 slited
ginger- 1 " piece- crushed
garlic- 3 flakes - crushed
saunf- 1/4 tsp
mustard seeds- 1/4 tsp
curry leaves- a few
turmeric powder- 1/4 tsp
chilli powder- 1/2 tsp or acc to taste
oil- 2 tbsp
salt to taste
coriander leaves- a few chopped finely

Method

Heat oil in a pan and add the mustard and saunf seeds.When they sizzle add the chopped onions , curry leaves and green chilli. Saute for some time and when the onions turn transparent add the crushed ginger,garlic and chopped tomatoes. Fry till the tomatoes are mushy and then add the chopped capsicum pieces and tomato sauce.Then add turmericpowder,chilli powder and salt. Keep in a slow flame for a few minutes or till the oil comes on top and then finally add the chopped chappathi pieces. mix well and garnish with chopped coriander leaves.
Serve hot just like that or with raitha.
U can try this with parottas too to make kothu parotta.
