spicy veg kothu roti using leftover tortillas

I had few leftover store bought tortillas which i ended up in making kothu roti,  those tortillas were actually not properly sealed  after using them ,ofcourse becoz of my laziness ;) ...they turned little crisp and i also had some leftover frozen veggies which i wanted to use before their expiry date so this dish took birth ,also this is actually not the authentic kerala style kothu roti ,as those are made up of chopped strips of fresh homemade kerala parothas,but since i used the tits -bits of rotis and it turned out quite chilli friendly i thought of naming it as kothu roti ,it turned out quite hot and we had them with a glass of water :-) but the taste was simply delicious,so beware before trying and adjust the masalas/spices according to your taste buds.I really thought it was somewhat near to kothu roti style.Sending this to pj for her scrumptious  delights from left overs event.
