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!!

Recipe Notes


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.
