Chapati Noodles -leftover roti/bread stir fried with vegetables and spices
Chapati Noodles -Using left over food and to feed that to fussy children is a big challenge.As we don’t want to throw the leftover food so we often try to create something new and interesting from it so that children didn’t easily recognize it as leftover food.
I use to add the left over daal in chapati dough and dry curries to stuff and make parathas and tikkis, rice being the easiest one can be used to make masala bhath ,fried rice ,pakora etc which childen really enjoy eating.
but the real challenge is to use leftover chapati in an interesting way.But I rarely have to use leftover chapatis,and when I do, then I make simple bhaji rolls with it,but now I want to try something different and interesting,so made these tangy roti noodles
This can be served as a snack,breakfast,main course or can easily pack for kids tiffin box.
