BeetRoot Paratha



  • 2-3 Medium sized Beet Roots
  • 2 Cup wheat flour
  • 1 Tablespoon oil

  • ½ teaspoon Turmeric powder
  • ½ teaspoon Cumin (Jeera) seeds

  • Oil for shallow frying the Paratha’s.
Nowadays I even add a little of fresh grated garlic and fresh grated ginger. It add to the taste. But it’s completely optional

    2. Once done , Grate or make fine pulp of the beetroot.

A little Chilli is required as if you don’t add it taste a little sweet as beet is a little on the sweetish side.
