lasagna

Who would have thought that rotis could replace puff pastry when you want to cook a lasagna at the last minute? Square chapatis are fun for kids and adults alike. You can prepare square chapatis, which makes it easier to layer in a rectangular dish. Prepare your lasagna based on tomato sauce with vegetables and minced meat if you wish. Add spices and herbs like oregano, basil and some red chili peppers for spice. Spread the red sauce first, garnish with rotis, then b├ęchamel sauce and cheese. Repeat until you reach the top of the dish. Bake until cheese melts and serve as usual.

Upma

An easy recipe that is often made at home, sooji upma is a no-brainer. However, the next time you want to cook this South Indian staple, use chapatis instead. Although there are many vegetables that can be added to upma to make it nutritious, you can add your favorite. As an option, you can also scramble a few eggs in the upma. If you want to keep it vegetarian or vegan, add paneer or tofu. Tear the chapatis into small pieces and in a kadhai add the onions, curry leaves and green chillies. Brown the onions then crack a few eggs into the pan. Scramble them, then add the chappati pieces. Cook until the eggs are firm and the rotis pieces are dry.

Nachos

Tortillas are a type of Mexican rotis that are used in a variety of dishes from quesadillas to tacos and to make nachos. This snack is a fusion dish that plays on Mexican flavors combined with Indian chapatis. Cut your rotis into triangles. You can choose to bake it, fry it, or stick it in an air fryer. Once crisp, transfer the fries to a plate and top with your usual nacho toppings such as refried beans, salsa, shredded chicken or paneer, sour cream and cheese.

noodles

Another fun fusion dish to try is Indo-Chinese noodles. Strips of rotis accompanied by crunchy vegetables are mixed with garlic and tomato, soy and chilli sauce. This tangy dish will make even the pickiest eater smile. It’s perfect for a quick evening snack or for tiffin boxes. To obtain the strips, roll up the chappatis and cut them into strips. Make sure the vegetables are also cut into strips. #ProTip: Make sure the roti strips aren’t too thin or they will get soggy.

Kofta

Usually made with minced meat or paneer, malai koftas can be replaced with chapati koftas, while using rotis made from the night before. To the boiled and mashed potatoes, add broken pieces of roti and chopped vegetables like green beans and onions. Grated cabbage and carrots can also be added. Shape the dough into balls and fry until golden brown. Drop them in a thick tomato-based sauce and serve with naan or rice. These koftas can also be used in any type of recipe including biriyanis, pulaos or even served as a fried snack.
