Vegetable Kothu Chapathi
Kothu parotta is one my favorite street food dishes. These days with hubby and I trying to cut down the calories, I usually make these with whole wheat tortillas or chapathis. These pack nicely as well for lunchbox. A filling dish, which is on the lower calorie and carb side. This dish is spicy enough and can be just served with curd.
Please check out my other favorite dishes with leftover chapathis : Chapathi Upma and Chili Chapathi and Egg Kothu Chapathi.

2. Diced onion, 1 cup.
3. Diced tomatoes, 1 cup.

Break the chapathis into small bite-size pieces and keep aside. Heat a pan with a tablespoon of oil. Once the oil is hot, add the fennel seeds and fry for a few seconds. Add the diced onions and saute until translucent. Now add the diced tomatoes, green chilies, and ginger-garlic paste and keep sauteeing until everything is blended. Add the diced vegetables along with turmeric powder, chili powder, garam masala and salt and mix well. Cook closed under low flame for 5 minutes until the vegetables are cooked.

Cooking and trying out new recipes is my passion. I come from a family with where type 2 diabetes is very common and we have lost many loved one due to complications of this disease. This blog is my humble attempt to create low-carb and healthy dishes and well as healthy lifestyle tips suitable for diabetics. This blog is to prove that healthy, primarily diabetic-friendly foods, can be tasty as well. Kuhapriyai @ Gita
