Roti/Chapatis are soft and best when you eat them hot hot....But we dont like to eat leftover rotis same way along with curries or dal as it will become little hard and chewy...Specially when guest were around and left out with so many rotis, dont know how to use them...Here is a really quick sweet recipe to utilize leftover rotis. Learn how to make leftover roti/chapati Churma in 10 minutes.

Preparation & Cooking Time : 10 minutes

YIELD : 2 serving


Leftover Roti/Chapati - 5 nos.
Mixed dry fruit powder - 2 tbsp
Jaggery - 3 tbsp (grated) adjust according to taste
Ghee - 2 tbsp
Cardomom Powder - 1 pinch 


  1. Break rotis in pieces and churn it in mixer and make coarse. It should be like rava/Sooji.
  2. If you dont have dry fruit powder ready add all dry fruits along with Roti in mixer.
  3. Heat the ghee in pan and add jaggery. let it melt down and add roti powder and dry fruit powder in it.
