One of those Clichéd Recipe in every Indian Household is the Chapati Fry. Chapatis are staple food , made out of whole wheat flour and usually had with a nice hot steaming Sabji/Curry for the sides. With every staple food leftover , there are several variants to the recipes. The following recipe is a Quick one , done in about 10 mins flat. Easy to adapt with various sauces. I’ve tried the Chilli Garlic sauce , Barbecue sauce , Simple Onion , Tomato and Chilli Fry. I mean there is no limitation to how you can adapt this recipe to use your best ingredients to make the humble Roti even tastier.
1) 4 Chapatis
2) 1 Medium Onion Chopped
3) 1 Medium Tomato chopped
4) 2 Table Spoons Chilli Garlic Sauce ( Got this with a Takeaway order for Momo’s the previous day..yet another leftover used in the recipe. ) Other alternatives being , Teriyaki sauce , Barbecue Sauce.
5) Mustard Seeds ( Optional )
6) Fresh green herbs for garnish. Used Coriander here.
Tear up the Chapatis into small pieces ( 1/4 Inch approx). In a wok , heat some oil , add the Mustard and wait until they splutter , add in the onions and fry them until they are golden brown , once done add the tomatoes and fry them a little. To this muxture add the Sauce of your choice and cook for a minute. ( This should at this point work more like a Pasta sauce ). After almost a minute add the Chapati pieces to the mixture and mix them well. Add some salt as per taste. Garnish it with fresh herbs. Serve Hot!
Hope you liked it ! If you do have an interesting sauce suggestion to go with this , I’d love to hear about it !
