Chawal ki Roti | Leftover Magic

Chawal ki Roti | Leftover Magic

I have made something gud after a while (exactly after the gobi paratha :-)). I was totally busy with work including on weekends :-(....no rest for long time now feeling so tried and looking forward to the weekend which going to hectic again I know. Coming back to the post, y'day night I have made Chawal ki roti. Preparation is very simple and result is tasty paratas.  The recipe is call Chawal ki Roti cause it made with rice and flour. It's a Rajastani recipe and generally the roti is made with leftover rice. Here is the recipe goes...


Leftover Cooked Rice - 1 Cup
Wheat Flour/Atta - 2 Cups
Redchilli powder - 1tps
Tumeric powder - 1/4 tps
Cumin Powder - 1/2 tsp [optional]
Salt to taste
Oil/ghee/butter - to make parathas
Water - to make dough


1. Make dough of leftover rice, atta, chilli, turmeric, cumin powders & salt. While mixing the dough add only little water. The best way to prepare the dough is to mix all the ingredients except water well and then add water in little quantities.  If added too much water then the dough will be very sticky.

2. Divide the dough into equals portion and roll like roti. The difficult part is to roll the roti as it tends to break while rolling, for which we need to keep dusting the roti with flour.
If the roti keep breaking or difficult to roll then add atta to make the dough firm. I know it's not coming near to circle but then that's okie, am not focusing on the shape.

3.In hot tawa cook the paratha both sides until golden brown and apply oil/ghee/butter.

Tasty chawal ki roti is ready to server.  You can have with any side dish.  The best way to use leftover rice.
