Kothu Chapathi | Quick Dinner Recipes

Have you got confused with the title??Is it something wrongly written or have I created something healthy to satisfy the hunger of my naughty pranks? Yes..the later of it is true,basically me & my husband don't favor the kerala parottas but of course once in a while is no big question.So,I thought to try the healthier version of kothu parotta by replacing "parottas" with "chapathis",Isn't it good,friends?? And it makes a complete balanced dinner.And if you some left over chapathis at home,then this can be served a tasty quick fix alternative !!



Ingredients
chapathi 5
onion 1 chopped fine
tomato 2(1+1) chopped & divided
capsicum 1 sliced(refer notes)
green peas 1/3 cup
cabbage 1 cup
eggs 2
ginger -garlic paste 1 tsp
chilly powder 1 tsp
pepper powder 1/2 tsp
garam masala 1 tsp
cilantro leaves
salt to taste
oil 2tbsp
water 2tbsp


Method
-Prepare chapathis as you regularly do,smear a little oil or ghee on top.Roughly chop them in small bits,keep aside.
-Heat oil in a pan and saute onion till translucent and then add the ginger-garlic paste.Saute till the raw smell disppears.
-Add in the thinly sliced cabbage, capsicum & peas.Saute till its cooked 3/4th,add a little salt.
-Add one of the tomato chopped,the spice powders and toss well.Cook covered for 5 mins on medium flame until the tomatoes becomes mushy and coats the masala.
-Add in the two eggs and scramble them.Adjust salt now.
-Add in the roughly chopped chapathis,sprinkle the water.Add the left out tomato and cilantro leaves.Mix everything well.
-Cover and leave for 2 minutes,then serve hot  just like that or with some lemon wedges or raitha !!



NOTES
*You can make the same with parottas too just replace the chapathis with parottas.Smearing oil on top of chapathis makes them soft and adds a taste.You can skip that if desired.
*You can add any veggies of choice.I used a yellow capsicum in the recipe,you can use any color one.
* Adding one tomato at the end gives a nice crunch to bite,if you aren't comfortable this way you can add that tomato along with the first one listed.
* You can even add any left out chicken curry/other curries to make the same,in that case you can remove all the spice powders listed.Add pepper powder & adjust spices accordingly .
