Beetroot Paranthas



There are some vegetables which are loaded with nutrients . But if your loved ones dont like to eat  it you are at loss as to how to make them have it and enjoy it too. One such superb way is to make parathas. In my family every one just loves paratha and so every time I make parathas I try adding new things , but taking care to see that the taste is not spoilt. Beetroot parathas is one such dish. My son who usually does not touch beet in salads , just cannot  stop himself from eating these parathas ( yummy for him and healthy for me .......)







Ingredients :

2 ..............................beetroots (boiled , peeled and grated )
2 ................................potatoes ( boiled, peeled and grated )
3 cups .........................wheat flour
1 tbsp...........................cumin - coriander powder ( dhana jeera powder)
1 tbsp ............................Dry mango powder ( amchoor powder )
2 tbsp..............................ginger chilly paste
salt

Method :

Mix all the above ingredients with just enough water and make a dough.
Roll out the parathas and roast them on a tawa adding spoonful of ghee or butter on both sides.
They taste yummy with any vegetable or achar or dahi raita.
They are just delicous.
Adding potato makes them soft and fluffy.
We had a hearty lunch with these parathas accompanied by palak paneer and egg curry.
