Phodnichi Poli (Resurrected Leftover Roti)

A very popular Maharashtrian breakfast is Phodnichi Poli. Leftover Rotis (Poli as it is called in Marathi) from previous night are recycled the next morning for breakfast, by dressing them up with some spicy tadka (tempering).

I also add some available veggies to make it tastier and healthier. Nothing is as comforting as a hot spicy Phodnichi Poli for breakfast!

You can also substitute Rotis with leftover Rice, Bhakris or Bread to make Phodnicha Bhaat (Rice), Phodnichi Bhakri or Bread chi Bhaji/chivda respectively!

Like many fusion recipes in my kitchen I love to sprinkle some Chutney Podi on my Phodnichi Poli to give it a fusion- Maharashtrian-South Indian taste! J

Phodnichi Poli can be called the ‘Queen of leftovers’ and hence I am sending it to dear Nandita’s  WBB#15- Breakfast from leftovers

Phodnichi Poli recipe

_____________________________________________________ 

7-8 leftover Rotis (Polis)

1-2 carrots grated (you can use beans, cauliflower, peas, tomatoes etc.)

1 onion chopped

4-5 green chillies slit and cut into pieces

5-6 curry leaves

2 tsp Urad Dal (white lentil)

A handful of peanuts

½ tsp mustard seeds

½ tsp cumene seeds

½ tsp turmeric powder

½ tsp sugar

Salt to taste 

For the garnishing:

Coriander leaves

Lime juice

Chutney Podi (optional) 

† Tear and crush the Rotis with your hands. Or if they are dry enough use a food processor to tear them to pieces.

† Add salt and sugar to the crushed Rotis and keep aside.

† Heat oil in a pan.

† Do the tadka (tempering). Mustard seeds- cumene seeds- turmeric powder- curry leaves

† Add the peanuts and the Urad dal and fry for a few minutes till the peanuts are fried nicely

† Add the green chillies and the chopped onions. Fry till the onions turn translucent.

† Add the grated carrot and cook for a few more minutes.

† Add the crushed Rotis, mix nicely and cook covered for 4-5 minutes stirring in between.

† Garnish with coriander and lime juice. Serve hot.

† My favourite combo is to eat Phodnichi Poli with a bowl of curd.

Another recycling idea with leftover Rotis – a must eat for people with a sweet tooth :Crush the Rotis with your hands as above. Add little ghee, crushed jaggery and some sesame seeds. Mix nicely and make small balls like ladoos from this mixture. 

These resurrected Rotis will take no time to vanish! J
