Tips for leftovers
1. Leftover sabjis form a good stuffing for parathas.
So if you have leftover sabjis like cauliflower, alu, methi, palak, alu-methi, alu-palak, just mash the sabji, fill this stuffing into your regular roti dough and prepare parathas.
You can also add some ginger-garlic paste, spices, lemon juice or chat masala to this leftover stuffing to change its taste.
2. Leftover dal can also be used for parathas.
Add wheat flour, little besan (gram flour) green chillies/red chilli powder, other spices (optional since dal already has spices), chopped coriander, salt to taste and knead a dough. Roll parathas and serve with pickle or yogurt.
4. Leftover chicken gravy (if without chicken pieces) could be used to prepare egg curry. To add some variation to the gravy try adding boiled and mashed potatoes, adjust seasonings and garnish with lots of coriander.
If chicken is leftover then shred it, use it in fried rice, noodles, or sandwiches.
6. Leftover bread can be used to prepare a delicious bread pudding. If the bread is older than a day or two then dry it properly in a dry place and grind them to crumbs. Store them in airtight containers.
7. Leftover chapatis (rotis) could be used to prepare Chapaticha Khuskura for breakfast, or Churma Laddoo. You can also prepare quick and simple egg parathas. Just spread some egg mixture on both sides of the chapati and lightly fry in oil.
