Kuskara /phodnichi poli/ chapati upma - left over recipes

         I have taken atleast a couple of breaks before finishing this post which I actually started out last evening. I usually try posting at some odd hour usually when my kids are sleeping. Sometime things do turn haphazard. But I am glad  that I can still continue my most favourite acitivity even after manging my five year old and a couple of  months baby. I do hope it continues this way.
        Now towards the post,this one is a left over delicacy which is usually prepared in Maharashtra with left over chapatis. It tastes good. I usually prepare this for breakfast when I have the time. Its nice to make it a tad spicy and be enjoyed with some thick curds and along with some hot masala tea makes a delicious breakfast!!So now dont you worry when you are left with some extra chapatis!!
kuskara/phodnichi poli/left over chapatis

Left over chapatis- 2-3
Onions-1 chopped fine
Green chillies-1 chopped (use more to make it more spicy)
Tomatoes- 1 chopped fine
Groundnuts- A handful
Quick cooking Oats- 1/2 cup(my addition and totally optional)
Oil- 2tsp
Mustard seeds-1tsp
Cumin seeds-1tsp
Turmeric powder- 1tsp
Salt to taste
Asafoetida- a pinch
Coriander leaves- chopped fine for garnish

    Tear the leftover chapatis into small pieces.You can even grind it in a mixie to tiny bits.
Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, asafoetida and groundnuts after the mustard pops. Add the green chillies and onions and saute for a minute. Add the tomatoes followed by turmeric powder and salt. When the tomatoes cook, add the pieces of chapatis and oats if adding.Mix well. Close the lid and allow it to cook for 2 minutes. Garnish with finely chopped coriander.
    Serve hot.

It usually pairs well with some curd on the side. Especially if you like it spicy, add more green chillies and it is an ultimate combo with curds.
You can also sprinkle some chivda/mixture on the top before serving.
