Chapathi noodles... a yummy makeover from leftover chapathis :)

What do you do with leftover rotis/chapathis??? Well at ours we make sure we dont waste food and try to use it in some way or the other. With chapathis we often end up making wraps, kothu chapathi(like kothu parotta) or baked chips and may be a few more. One yummy makeover is this special noodles. Its not like the fast food noodles or the instant noodles that you get in the stores but its different in texture, taste and healthiness too. We dont buy instant noodles at all whatever be the reason.If we really crave for some good noodles any day then we make sure we roll out our own dough and make it special. So to convince the kids about noodles I often end up making this noodles-like healthy goodness which they enjoy

Kids love this as they are way different from chapathi and they look like noodles and the they taste even better as its completely homemade. My kids love to enjoy this as a snack or dinner or sometimes even as school snack. Sometimes we make chapathis eespecially to make the noodles

The main ingredient is chapathis which are tossed in with some veggies and sauce. Instead of making chapathi and sabji... try making this for your kids some day and they will enjoy it to the core. Serve it hot and enjoy it with your family

Note: I have mixed up pictures from a couple of batches so you many see some variattion in quantity of veggies and others in some pics. Sorry about it   

Serves... 3 ppl
Serve option... Hot

This is what u'll need...

Chapathis - 4
Ginger - 1/2 inch piece
Garlic cloves - 4 small
Onion - 1 small
Carrot - 1 small
Capsicum - 1 small
Tomato ketchup - 2 tbspn
Soya sauce - 1 tbspn
Spring onion greens - few
Oil - 2-3 tbspn
Pepper to taste
Salt to taste

Here is the stir....
  • Make chapathis without oil. We will be adding oil when making the sauce and that should be enough. Cut the chapathis into thin strips of desired size.Keep this aside and get the sauce ready

  • Heat 3 tablespoon of oil in a nonstick pan. Remember we did not add any oil to the chapathis so its ok to add some here else the noodles will taste very dry. A little greasiness will make it taste good. Add thinly sliced/julienned ginger and garlic. SAute this for a few minutes until you can smell the ginger and garlic
  • Slice onions thinly and toss it into the pan. Turn the flame to high
  • Thinly slice carrot and add it to the pan. Saute this for about half a minute
  • Add thinly sliced green bell pepper to the pan and cook it covered for about half a minute

  • Spoon in 2 tablespoon tomato ketchup and 1 tbspn soya sauce to the sauteed vegetables

  • Season it with salt and pepper. You can also add a dash of vinegar and sugar like you would do for noodles. I did not add any here

  • If the mixture looks very dry then add a little water to just wet it up
  • Toss in the cut chapathi into the hot pan
  • Give everything a good sir until all the chapathi strips are evenly coated with the sauce and veggies
  • Garnish with some chopped spring onion greens
  • Transfer it to a serving plate and serve hot. Enjoy our snack

                                        • Keep the heat high when cooking the veggies to keep them crisp.If you are photographing like I did then they will turn soggy ;)
                                        • Adjust sauces to suit your taste
                                        • You can add a little vinegar too but its purely optional
