My system got totally sick yesterday and I couldn’t update anything.  It got fixed just now and I am ready with my post for today.

I made this recipe a while back and just now got time to post it. Many of you have been asking me to post recipe to put in lunchbox for kids and I can tell you this is perfect for that.This is a great recipe for leftover roti or chapati. I used my only carrot in this, but you could use any of your favorite vegetable like capsicum and cabbage.

Chef Mireille said... Best Blogger Tips

This is very similar to a popular street food in Sri Lanka called Koothu, where they stir fry strips of roti with chile, onions, etc. The vegetarian version they add grated is delicious, as I'm sure this is.
