Some important points before moving ahead with this recipe..

☑Ingredients required 

🔸4-5 Leftover or Fresh Chapati
🔸2-3 medium sized tomatoes 
🔸4-5 garlic cloves

🔸2 tsp coriander powder

♨Step 1 Make coarse paste

◾Combine roughly chopped tomato, green chillies, coriander leaves and garlic cloves.

◾Pulse for 5-7 seconds as we need coarse paste. Keep it aside until called for.

♨Step 2 - Break and soak the Chapati 

◾Break the Chapati into bite size pieces or thin out into thin strips using a sharp knife or scissors.

◾Soak them in water for a min or two. The soaking time depends on the stiffness of the chapati. If Chapatis are soft, soak in water for a few seconds and immediately remove it, whereas if the Chapatis are dry and crisp soak it for a minute or two. Remove it from the water, keep it aside until called for.

♨Step 3 Cooking time

◾Heat the oil in a fry pan.

◾Add the coarse paste prepared in step no. 1.  Cook it for 2-3 minutes on high flame till the raw smell goes away, then add all the dry ingredients that is coriander powder, turmeric powder, red chilly powder and salt to taste.. 

◾Mix well, cook it for a minute or two. Now add soaked Chapati strips, gently mix it. Add ½ - 1 cup of water.  Let the mixture simmer over medium heat for 4-5 minutes or cook till liquid evaporates and Chapati are nicely cooked and coated with the spices.
