Leftover food is a common occurrence in kitchens all across the world. Many people just throw it away, while others eat it again the next, but half-heartedly. Won't it be great if you don't have to waste so much food every other day and also don't have to force yourself to eat the same dish again the very next day? Dinner leftovers, especially after a get-together, can be easily turned into some interesting breakfast recipes the next morning. We are sure now you want to know how, so here goes-
Use leftover foods to make these 5 breakfast recipes:
1. Leftover Rice
Rice is almost always leftover after a lavish dinner spread. One tends to make rice in a large quantity, all of which may or may not be used. You can turn leftover rice into a delicious taco. All you have to do is roast some veggies like carrots, cucumbers, corns, capsicum, mushroom etc. and add to the rice. Next bake some rotis or use store-bought taco shells and fill them with the prepared rice. An entirely different morning meal is ready.
2. Leftover Roti
After rice, it's usually a stack of rotis that is left untouched in the hot box after a dinner fare. Store these rotis in an aluminium foil and refrigerate them. Next morning, simply saute some onions, tomatoes and a veggie like paneer, potato or capsicum and place on the rotis to make tasty rolls.
3. Leftover Dal
