Beetroot Paratha

Hi Readers,

Yesterday, I had made beetroot paratha for dinner. My mom used to make different paratha's just to ensure we eat the veggi when young. Its a good way to make paratha's and feed anyone who does not like that veggi.  My husband also likes to have different paratha's than having normal roti.

Lets now have a look at the recipe.

Ingredients :- 

2 beet root, peeled and grated
3 cups wheat flour
salt as per taste
water to knead

Note :- You can boil the beetroots and grate if you want. You can also add in amchur masala, ajwain or cumin seeds if you like.

Method :-
In bowl, take wheat flour, add beetroot, salt and water. Knead it into a dough of chapati consistency. Allow the dough to rest for 10 mins. Divide the dough into small parts. Roll these and heat a tawa. Add this paratha and cook in medium flame till brown spots appear on both sides. Add little oil and spread it all over the paratha and cook it for another 1 min. Turn each side to coat the oil and cook. Serve with any curry. I have served this with green peas and potato curry.

If you are using boiled beetroot, then it will cook in less time. But, finely grated beetroot can be added directly and would give same taste.
