Creative ways with leftovers

1Leftover sandwiches from last night's party can be cut into small squares and dipped
in gram flour (besan) batter and deep fried.

2. Use leftover vegetables to make stuffed parathas. They turn out delicious.Serve with cucumber raitha or pickles. They make a nutritious meal on their own.

3. Leftover basmati rice can be mixed with chopped green chillies, coriander,ginger, salt
red chilli powder and a little corn flour. Knead lightly into a pliable dough.Shape the
dough into small balls and deep fry and serve with hot chutney as a starter or a snack.

4. Leftover burfee can be used to thicken kheer or used in place of khoa for carrot halwa.

5. Leftover curds can be added to vegetables and curries in place of tomatoes to make
a rich gravy.

6. Leftover Arabic bread (khoubz) can be cut into squares deep fried and sprinkled with salt,
red chilli powder, pepper and amchoor (mango ) powder and served as a starter with a dip.

7. Leftover rotis can be broken into small pieces and sauted with butter and sugar.
Kids will love this.

8. Left over Arabic bread (khubz) can be cut into rounds and deep fried, broken into pieces
and made into a delicious chaat (savoury) by adding chopped onions, green chillies,
fresh coriander, tamarind chutney and green chutney.

9. Leftover chopped fruits can be blended with milk, sugar and scoops of vanilla to make
an exotic fruit milk shake.
