I remember as kids, we awaited Sunday Breakfast. It was the time to gorge on the yummy egg omelets and those kadak pavs…those sundays were indeed special as it was the only time we used to get to bond as a family after a hectic week and each one of us used to treasure it. “Breakfast” the most important meal of the day and seriously under rated, especially in a fast paced city like Mumbai!! Imagine begining the day with no fuel to go on…nope not for me. I love my breakfast and so does my family. But things do tend to get too monotonous, the same upma, poha, sheera etc etc….moreover there are times when we tend to get lazy. I do!!! Especially after a late night out. So I have a collection of recipes precisely for those lazy mornings…quick but nutritious and healthy. This one is from the chapaties left over from the the night before. And its unbelievably yummy and simple! Makes a perfect tiffin option for my kid and a filling breakfast to kick start my day!



  1. Shred the chapaties into small pieces. You can cut them with a knife or simply tear them into small pieces.
  2. Heat Oil in a pan. Add the mustard seeds, when they sputter toss in the jeera. Now add the chopped onion, peas, carrots, green chilly, curry leaves and cook till the onions turn translucent.
  3. Add the red chilli powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder, sugar and salt and mix. Toss in the shredded chapaties and mix. Cover and cook for 3 mins. Turn off the heat , add the lemon juice and mix. Serve garnished with coriander. You can also gar

Hi! I am Sonali, mom to a fast growing teenager and a homemaker.I love to cook, read and travel ( and in that order). I believe that travel keeps the cook ever so innovative. Each time I travel, I scourge the market places and eateries for some new ingredient or recipies. I believe that every type of cuisine has its own story to relate……One that’s fascinating.Being born and brought up in Mumbai which is often called “a melting pot of culinary delights” helped me explore and experiment with a wide range of cuisines.So come share with me the tang of lime, the bite of chilli, the fresh herbs, the crunch of raw veggies and experience the wide spectrum of textures and sharp flavours of different cusines.
