Everyday when I finish my dinner I am left with few chapathis or sometimes when guests visit me I get confused and prepare lots of chapathis, which in turn left in tonnes and I have to either throw them up or eat it in Next day’s lunch.
So here I came up with some innovative ideas on how to manage leftovers.
These leftover wheat chapathi salad wrap is not only recycled but it is rich in vitamin A, iron, vitamin C and fibre, making a wholesome, satiating breakfast, from left-over chapatis. This dish can be put together quickly, if the hummus has been prepared in advance and refrigerated.
