As I mentioned in my previous post now a days lunch is home made ice cream, so on one such day after gorging on home made vanilla & mango ice cream around late afternoon when stomach started to rumble that was the sign that I need to go to kitchen & cook something. So this quick dish is result of all the above. I had some left over rotis(Indian flat bread), instantly the idea of roti poha on the lines of bread poha came to my mind. This dish was done in within less than 10 minutes start to finish, it's just a guideline one can add any veggies of their choice.
What U need :
4 left over rotis/chapatis, cut into around 1 x 1/2 inch pieces
around 1 & a half cup of thinly shredded cabbage
1/3 cup of frozen peas
1/3 cup of frozen corn
3-4 green chillies, chopped
1 tsp. mustard seeds (rai)
few curry leaves
2 Tbsp. of cooking oil
pinch of asafoetida(hing)
salt to taste
1 tsp. turmeric powder(haldi)
1 tsp. red chilli powder(lal mirch powder)
1/2 cup dry roasted peanuts
1 Tbsp. dry roasted sesame seeds
cilantro or green onions, chopped for decoration
juice of 1/2 a lime
What U do :
Take a wide pan/wok/karahi, heat oil in that.
Add mustard seeds once they splutter add curry leaves, also add hing.
Turn the gas to high & add cabbage & cook it for 1-2 minutes on high heat only and then add peas & corn. Keep stirring veggies as it's on high heat.
After another minute or so add salt, turmeric, chilli powder & chopped green chillies.
After another minute or so add roti pieces, mix everything together. Once rotis get coating of all the flavors, around 2 minute, turn the gas off.
Sprinkle peanuts, sesame seeds and lime juice. Garnish with green onions or cilantro.
Note : this dish is done on high heat & no liquids are used, only little oil, so make sure U keep stirring the veggies otherwise they might stick to the bottom of pan. If needed use only a spoon or two of water. Cooking them quickly on high heat helps in retaining the crunchiness of cabbage. If U prefer little water can be used & cabbage can be cooked till it's fully soft. Once dish is done Covering the pan with lid will also helps in getting some moisture to the dish & making it little more soft.
So next time U have any left over rotis, try this recipe it's perfect as anytime snack or as morning breakfast, healthy and filling, enjoy.
