Leftover Roti Snack


Leftover Roti Snack

What started as a snack made from leftover rotis, is now a regular breakfast item in my kitchen. I make extra rotis the previous night to have this breakfast. It is spicy, crunchy, healthy, and quick.

Fresh curry leaves add more crunch and flavor to this snack. Tear/crush the curry leaves a little to get more flavor from them. Only thing you need to take care of is to cook this on low flame and eat it while it is hot and fresh. It tends to get chewy if left for too long after cooking.

You can enjoy this snack with a hot cup of chai (tea) or coffee. I enjoy it as it is. Hot, crispy and flavorful.

Leftover Roti Snack



Serves 2

  • 5 rotis
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • ¼ tsp cumin seeds
  • ¼ tsp mustard seeds
  • 4 cloves garlic chopped
  • 10-12 curry leaves
  • ¼ tsp asafoetida
  • ¼ tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • 2 tbsp buttermilk
  • Salt to taste


Tear the rotis into small pieces. Heat oil in a kadhai or thick bottomed pan. Add cumin seeds and mustard seeds. Once the seeds pop, add curry leaves and garlic. Sauté for 30-40 seconds on low flame.

Add asafoetida, turmeric, chilli powder, and salt. Give it a very quick mix and put the roti immediately and mix well to coat the mixture on rotis. Sauté for 1 minute on low flame. Add the buttermilk and mix well. Sauté on a low flame for 2-3 minutes or till the roti is crispy.

Serve hot with tea.
