Chapaticha Chivada (Phodnichi Poli)

Chapaticha Chivada (Phodnichi Poli) is very good way to use leftover chapatis/polis and a great option for breakfast.

  • Leftover chapati- 6
  • Onion, chopped- 1 large / 1½ cup
  • Peanuts- ¼ cup
  • Homemade masala or red chili powder- 1 to 1½ tsp
  • Curry leaves- 1 string
  • Turmeric powder-  ¼ tsp
  • Asafoetida (Hing)- ¼ tsp
  • Mustard seeds- 1 tsp
  • Cumin seeds- 1 tsp
  • Sesame seeds- ½ tsp (optional)
  • Sugar- 1 tsp
  • Oil- 3 to 4 tbsp
  • Salt- to taste
  • Coriander leaves, finely chopped-  ¼ cup

  • Tear the leftover chapatis into small pieces. You can even grind it in a food processor. I used food processor for this lengthy process. 
  • Heat oil in pan/kadhai. Add peanuts and saute till they turn slightly brown in color. Remove them from pan and keep aside.
  • Add muster seeds and let them crackle.
  • Add cumin seeds, hing, curry leaves and onion.
  • Saute till onion turns pink.
  • Add chapati mixture, salt, sugar and mix well. If required sprinkle some water.
  • Cook covered for 1-2 mins.
  • Add fried peanuts, coriander and mix well. Turn of the gas.
  • Serve hot. Sprinkle a few drops of  lemon juice over chivada if you like.
