Chapati Pohe

This is a very popular dish in Maharashtra and makes good use of left over chapatis/rotis. If you are like me, you may even make it with freshly made chapatis. 🙂 Chapati Poha makes for a healthy breakfast or light lunch.


  1. Chapatis – 4
  2. Onion – 1
  3. Medium Green Chillies – 3 or 4
  4. Red Chilli Powder – 1/4 tsp
  5. Mustard Seeds – 1/3 tsp
  6. Oil – 1 tbsp
  7. Curry Leaves – 3 or 4
  8. Turmeric – A Pinch
  9. Salt to Taste


  1. Tear the chapatis into small pieces.
  2. Finely chop the onion.
  3. In a wok/kadai, heat the oil. Add the mustard seeds and wait till they splutter.
  4. Add the onion pieces and fry till transparent.
  5. Add the green chillies, curry leaves, and turmeric.
  6. Fry for 5-10 seconds.

  • If the chapati are too dry, sprinkle 1-2 tsps of water on the chapati pieces after tearing them. Mix well.
  • Do not add too much water or the pieces will turn to mush. 🙁
  • You could also add some garam masala or some more red chilli powder.
