Sustainable kitchen is a concept slowly gaining popularity in the post-Covid era. Eco-friendly kitchens involve several techniques to make it a self-sustaining, environment-conscious unit; for instance, people are choosing to grow their own produce in kitchen gardens to reduce their carbon footprint. Another major factor to consider while making the kitchen sustainable is limiting the amount of food waste generated. This means using and reusing leftovers from the kitchen to create new and innovative recipes. A recent Twitter thread discussed this very practice of using the previous day's leftover sabzi or curry to make a completely new dish. It all started with a tweet by user @dillisingh:

"As Punjabis, we have evolved to open the fridge, find an obscure bowl of leftovers and ask ourselves two questions. Kya iske parathe ban sakte hain? Kya iske sandwich ban sakte hain," wrote the user in his hilarious tweet. The tweet went viral, receiving over 3.7k likes and hundreds of comments and retweets. Several users agreed with the relatable post, saying that making paranthas with leftovers was a common practice found in many Indian households and not just Punjabi ones.
Desi Twitter also came up with their own unique suggestions and ideas for recipes made with the previous day's leftover sabzi or curry.
