Roti upma

Hi Friends,

This is another recipe that I try couple of months back, but could not post earlier. Its an innovative idea with left over chapati's. For Indian's its either rice or roti that is eaten as a main portion a night. Mostly, people of south have rice for dinner and people of north have roti's. Not just dinner but roti is a most for people of north in lunch as well. But, we people of Odisha, where do we lay? No idea, for most of the urban population of Odisha, it is rice in lunch and roti for dinner. This holds good for some of the rural population as well. So, we are a mixture right. We have breakfast as Chakuli Pitha, Chitau Pitha (similar to Dosa of south), however our curries resemble mostly north. But, yes our facial and figure resemble Bengali's and our tradition is almost similar to Bengali. I got distracted from the original topic a bit,lets now go back to main topic.
For people who prefer chapati or roti, it is common to have left over's. So, what do you do with these. Just warm them and have with curries, milk or chai or have you come up with something innovative.

I am sure, you must have tried something or the other at times. Here, is one such recipe that I prepared after being inspired by other foodie blogger's. Its a normal stir fry recipe with less oil and spices.Try it once, it is a makeover of the dull left over roti's.

Ingredients :- 
3 to 4 left over chapati's torn into small pieces.
1 green capsicum chopped
1 red pepper bell chopped
1 yellow pepper bell chopped
1 Onion chopped
1 green chili chopped
1/2 tbsp black pepper powder
salt as per taste
olive or canola oil 1 tbsp
1 tbsp lemon juice

Heat a pan. Add oil, when oil is hot add onions, stir fry till it turns pink. Add chopped vegetables and stir fry for 3 mins. Add roti peices. Mix in salt and pepper powder. And fry for another 2 mins. Now turn off the flame, add lemon juice and serve hot.
