Pichipotta (shredded) Chapati Omelette for breakfast is one of my favorite ways to use leftover chapati. Eggs for breakfast is very filling and will keep you going for a long time. This entire recipe can be put together in under 30 minutes and is a favorite at home. If you are in a hurry, you can skip adding the veggies (potatoes and peas). You can add already boiled and diced potatoes and it works just fine. Do try this recipe at home when you have chapatis or rotis left over from dinner. This is an excellent way to turn around those dry chapatis and give them a makeover.

Here are some of the recipes you can make with leftover chapati / roti.
