Chatpata Leftover Rice Paratha#SundayFunday

Leftover food  is  a regular affair in every household. Of all those leftover food, rice is one of the most common leftover food. So what do you do with that leftover rice?  Yes!! you can reheat the leftover rice  which can easily be consumed in the next meal as it is.  
But, transforming the same leftover  food   into something interesting and delicious, by adding some basic ingredients  that can be enjoyed/relished by all and is different.  So here I have combined the leftover rice with whole wheat flour, spices and made a chatpata and delicious paratha out of it for a wholesome breakfast or main course meal.  

2 Cups Leftover Boiled Rice 
1½ Cups Whole Wheat Flour 
½ Teaspoon Red Chilly Powder 
¼ Teaspoon Turmeric Powder 
1 Teaspoon Coriander Powder 
½ Teaspoon Cumin Powder  
½ Teaspoon Salt 
½ Teaspoon Chat Masala 
1 Tablespoon Coriander Leaves
For Frying 
Oil + ghee - as required

Reheat the rice in the microwave by sprinkling some water over it for 2 minutes on high power.
In a large bowl take the leftover rice , wheat flour and mash it it well as you are combining both. Now add in rest of the ingredients and knead a soft dough add just little water for kneading to make a soft dough. Cover the dough with damp cloth and rest it for 10-15 minutes.
Make small balls out of the dough. Dust the work surface with flour and roll them gently using rolling pin to make round paratha. Keep the aside, covered with a damp cloth.
Heat a tawa/griddle on medium low flame, when hot place the paratha and let is cook for 2 minutes. Flip it the paratha and increase the flame to medium high and spread ghee or oil and on top and the sides, when one side is cooked again flip and cook until the paratha turns golden brown when it gets cooked. See that both the sides are cooked well.
It's soft and moist, serve hot with pickle and yogurt.  Do try this recipe with the leftover rice you have in the refrigerator and Enjoy!

  1. I will try this the next time I have leftover rice. Thanks Sneha.

  2. This is a fabulous use of leftover rice, Sneha. You are so clever! I'm sure the moisture the rice adds makes the paratha softer, always a good thing.

  3. We always have leftover right, too. But I have never thought to do anything like this. can't wait to try it, Sneha.

  4. Looks good! I often have extra rice and get tired of the usual repurposing. Flatbread sounds nice.
