Beet Root Puri – Cook With Renu

Beet Root Puri

Once again with a beet recipe. Wanted to make this since long, but just could not, so finally I made it. Loved the colour it imparted to my puri’s and the taste. I really enjoyed it as is, but one can eat it with achaar, Kheer or with aloo saag or with anything you could think of…….

Ingredients

  • 2 Cup Whole Wheat flour
  • 1/2 Cup Beet Root Grated (I used raw only and One can even make puree)
  • Oil 1 Tablespoon
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 teaspoon Jeera (Cumin seeds)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Haldi (Turmeric)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Red Chilli powder (or as per taste)
  • Oil for frying

Preparation 

  1. Knead the dough with Grated Beet, 1 tablespoon oil, Jeera, Red Chilli powder and salt. The dough should be stiffer than normal Roti/Chapati dough
  2. Let it rest for 1 hour.
  3.  Divide the dough into equal sized balls.
  4. Start rolling it into round shape around 2-2.5 inch in diameter.  
  5. Puri should be rolled evenly to have nice fluffy puri’s
  6. In the mean while start heating the oil. Once the oil is nice and hot dip the puris. To test if the oil is hot enough, dip a small pinch of the puri dough in hot oil, it should come instantly up or alteast in 3-4 seconds.
  7. When you dip the puri, let it first come up and then slowly press it with the back of your spoon to let it puff up.
  8. Turn and again let it cook on the other side.
  9. We just need to cook on either side, there is no need of turning it upside down again and again.
  10. Hot and yummy puri’s are ready. Enjoy it with Kheer or Spicy Aloo Saag.
