Leftover Paratha, Roti or Chapati Chips: Chapati Chips: Paratha Chips

Leftover paratha, roti or chapati? Wondering what to do? How about chips? Yes, you can use leftover or parathas or chapati and make crispy chips with it. My mother has been doing it for years and the result is so amazing that you will be hooked.

Infact we enjoy these paratha chips so much that sometimes I deliberately roll extra parathas so that I can make chips out of it. Yes these are sooo good.

All you need to do it is cut parathas into any shapes-triangles, strips or squares and fry them-yup that’s it. Serve these chips with hot cup of tea or just like that. It serves as a great side with chutney or riata as well.

Leftover paratha, roti or chappati
Oil to fry
Salt to taste
Red chilli powder to taste

Heat oil in a pan.
Cut paratha into any shapes.
When oil gets hot fry the paratha until crisp on medium-high heat.
Sprinkle salt and red chilli powder. Let it cool down before serving.

You can also use chaat massala instead of salt and red chilli powder.
This stays well in a airtight container for 1 week.

Serving suggestions: Serve as a teatime snack.
Serve as a side with dips such as hummus, tomato chutney or riata.
