Leftover food is a common affair in every household. We often prepare dal, roti, rice or sabzi in excess quantity, without realising that these might end up in our dustbins. One of the most common problems with leftover foods is the fact that several people do not like repeating the same food in two consecutive meals. But wasting food seems like a terrible idea! Instead, we must always look for options to recycle the same old food, without making them dull and monotonous. One such unique dish is chapatti noodles, made with leftover roti.
