Cuisine: Indian
Recipe Type: Parathas

  • Grated beetroot -1 small sized
  • Wheat flour -2 cups
  • Cumin powder -1/2 tsp
  • Red chili powder -1/2 tsp
  • Green chili paste -1 tsp
  • Ghee -1 tsp
  • Salt

1. Wash and peel off the skin of beetroot. Grate it very finely. Take a mixing bowl and add the grated beetroot. Add cumin powder, salt, red chilly powder and ghee. Mix all the ingredients. Add whole wheat flour and knead to smooth dough. Sprinkle little water if needed and knead well.
2. Take a small portion of the chapatti dough Roll it using a rolling pin in to a small circle big enough to hold the filling. Place 1-2 tbsp. of the filling in the center. Join all ends together; remove any excess dough (if any) after joining the ends. 
3. Using some dry flour, roll the dough stuffed with filling using a rolling pin to get uniform & slightly thick paratha. Heat the pan to medium heat & once hot add the paratha on the pan. 
4. Roast it for about a min & then flip. While the other side is cooking, apply some butter/ghee to the top part of paratha. Flip again & let the side with butter cook. Repeat the same step with the other side too. Cook them on both side by drizzling oil to the sides. Enjoy the nice aroma and color of the roti’s. Repeat the above steps to make the remaining paratha's .Apply butter / ghee to the cooked chapatti (optional). It will give nice flavor. The delicious Beet Chapattis are ready to have.
