Diet Info: DF GF F LF Na LS VG V Fa

Lentils and legumes are every day source of vegetarian protein and staple no-meat main course in Indian cuisine. Even when we make dry curry for main course, some lentils are served on the side. At-least once or twice every week, I make simple lentil curries for supper. Often I have leftover 1/2 cup to 1/4 cup lentils at the end of meal. Then comes dilemma of using leftovers.... transforming leftover lentils to breakfast or lunch next day.

Staple in my home areLentil (leftover) Curry Soup for lunch, Lentil Salad for lunch, or Lentil Curry Flat Bread for breakfast. Some of my favorite and most loved ways to use leftover lentils.

If you like eating lentils, I am sure you too will have leftovers once-in-a-while. So..... next time, when you enjoy some lentil's curry and have leftovers, make these wholesome, delicious, healthy, and filling flat bread for breakfast. Feel free to use takeaway lentils from Indian restaurant Or buy a packet of precooked Lentil Curry from store.

If you have an Indian Store near-by, most Indian curries are sold in 1-2 Serving small packets. Look for Yellow Lentil Curry, Madras Lentil Curry or any similar lentil's preparation. One package can be used to make about 10-12 Flat Breads with Wheat Flour. Or you can eat lentils curry with rice for dinner and save just 1/4 cup for flat bread.

Nutty, Flavorful, and Healthy:

Lentil (daal) Flat Bread (parantha) gets nutty texture from cooked lentil almost like cooked chickpea flour. This breakfast flat bread is wholesome and healthy - with lentil proteins, whole wheat, and anti-oxidants of turmeric.
