Chapati Poha(Reposting)

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
One of my favorite breakfast... Chapati Poha
Reposting for the event...



Recipe here,
Left over chapatis (Indian wheat flat breads) - 8 to 10
(Click Soft Chapatis my way for the recipe to make chapati)
Oil - 1 tbsp
Onion - 1 medium, finely chopped
Green Chilly - 1 finely chopped
Curry leaves - few
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Urad dal (Skinned Black  gram) - 1 tbsp
Salt to taste
Turmeric powder - pinch
Sugar - 1 tsp
Tomato - 1 medium (optional)
OR
Lime juice - 1 tbsp(I used this)
Fresh coriander to garnish

Cut the chapatis in to four pieces. Grind into batches to turn those into coarse powder, not powder. We need the chapati like Poha. Keep it aside.
Heat oil in a pan. 
Add mustard seeds. When splutter, add Urad dal
when they start changing the color, add jeera or cumin seeds, curry leaves. Fry till the urad dal changes its color to gold.
Add onion, green chilly. Fry it till the onion becomes almost brown and well cooked. Add the tomato in between (If you are adding it)
Now add salt and  turmeric powder. Add lemon juice. Mix well. 
Put the coarsed chapati. Add sugar and mix well to combine the ingredients together.
Cook for 2 minutes. Garnish with fresh coriander.
