Dishes with leftover chapatis
Whether you prepare the chapati in a roti maker or you make it traditionally, here are some of the magical dishes that can be prepared with leftover chapatis. You can also make them in Rotimatic. They are as follows:
- Roti Roll
This is an extremely common dish and is loved by people of all ages. After all, this is a saviour to the extreme burger pangs that we get but cannot afford because of its high price and unhealthy impact. When you reach home after a tiring day, or you feel too lazy to cook, prepare a roti roll. Take a roti, spread tomato ketchup on top of it. Sprinkle some garlic or potato wedges and roll it. Your roti roll is ready! This recipe can be made easily with the rotis that were made in a Roti Maker. Best Rotimatic reviews on the web will help you decide it better.
- Roti Cutlet
Are you craving for something spicy and crunchy? Well, when it comes to something spicy, you cannot think of healthy food. However, this chapati cutlet is a healthy one. The amount of oil that you put to fry it is up to your choice. If you want shallow fry, use less oil, while for deep fry, pour in more oil.
- Roti Cutlet sandwich
Once the chapatti cutlets are done, you are a few steps away from making the patty of your sandwich. Take two loaves of sandwich bread. Spread butter or mayo on top of it. Place the cutlet, followed by lettuce, onion rings and some tomato. Also, you can have a garlic mayo dip with it.
- Seyal phulka
If you are a Sindhi, you must be familiar with this dish. To prepare seyal phulka, you need stale chapatis, garlic, tomato, onions, green chillies, and coriander leaves. It is simple but super tasty.
- Roti chaat
When it comes to chaats, they are always finger-licking! Chaats have the power to switch your bad mood into a good chatpata one! When you like something so badly, don’t you think you should put a healthy twist on it? Instead of the fries that are used in the chat, you can use stale roti. Fry the stale roti in less oil. Leave it for the crust to get hardened.
- Roti chips
Who doesn’t like chips! I’m sure none will say no to chips. But why go for those unhealthy ones when you have a choice to eat healthy chips!

That’s something interesting! Next time when friends barge into your house, give them a surprise with chapati chips!
