chappatti goring

previous night's chapattis with a makeover result in this amazing dish called chappatti goring. i would like to believe that this dish gets the name because it is made from chappattis that 'go' a long way!

 this is a wonderfully easy recipe for a lazy day... i simply love it.


the name is chapatti goring. not goreng with an 'e'- that would mean fried rice in malaysia or indonesia.

it is my favourite breakfast if there happens to be leftover chappattis from previous night. the dish is very simple yet versatile. it can be made nutritious with a little imagination. and can be made in no time.

let me share both the original and the improvised versions here.

original ingredients: 2 chopped chapattis [use left over from previous meal], 2 tbsp chopped onions, 2 chopped green chillies, 1 egg, 1 tsp oil, salt to taste.

original method: saute onions until they are pink, add green chillies, break and egg, add salt, add chapatti and stir fry all the ingredients. serve hot. you can eat it with coconut chutney powder [it is an enjoyable combination if you keep aside the thoughts on how healthy it must be ;)].

i have given some healthy tweaks to this wonderful recipe and have got 7 different variation of gorings over the last few weeks. trust me i love each one of them. keeping the common ingredients as chapatti and egg, try adding various vegetables.

here is the recipe of my favourite chappathi goring that i had this morning.

ingredients: 1 chapatti, 1 chopped tomato, 1 chopped green chilli, 1 tbsp chopped coriander leaves, 1 egg, a pinch of garam masala, 1/2 tsp of virgin olive oil, salt to taste.

method: saute tomatoes until water disappears and they gleam in the oil, add chillies, egg, garam masala, salt, coriander leaves... mix and add chopped chapattis. saute.

[skip the chutney powder and serve hot... with a smile ;)]

ps: if in case you are wondering what happened to the chapters of the novelog '13 Until I Die'... let me please assure you they are right behind. and one more thing. my paintings are showing at radisson blu yas island all this ramadan, until August 20, 2012. these days event related work and travel keep me a bit distracted in learning new things all the time - so i think i can skip a 'sorry for the delay in my posts'. am also writing something interesting on my coffee on canvas paintings and it will soon show on http://www.bluartgallery.com/. stay tuned!
