Chappati/Roti upma

What do you do when you have dried and old roti from a day or two. The answer is yummy roti upma. The inspiration came from Mahanandi bajra roti upma. I did not make bajra roti. Mine was the normal roti but they still turned out to be very tasty.

- 3 roti (preferably a day old)
- 1/2 cup of black eye peas cooked
- 1 small onion chopped
- 1 green chili chopped (adjust to taste)
- pinch of turmeric and hing powder
- 1 tsp jeera
- 1 tsp oil
- salt to taste
- squeeze of lemon (optional)

1. Tear the roti to small pieces. Sprinkle them with water if they are too dry.
2. Now in a pan add oil and jeera seeds. Once it starts to splutter add the hing powder and turmeric powder. Cook for 10 seconds. Mix in the onions and sauté till it turns slightly brown.
3. Add the cooked black eye peas, salt and mix well. Add the roti pieces.
4. Cover and cook for 4-5 minutes. The roti should become soft.
5. Remove from the heat and squeeze a little lemon. This adds a fun taste to the old roti's.

Serve it hot for a yummy snack.

This is nice. We are always left with some roti's, it would be great to transform it into something exciting.
