Beetroot Chapati / Beetroot Paratha




My Mom used to make many unique dishes which I relished. After marriage, I had forgotten some of these recipes. But Gayatri's Cookspot - Walk through the Memory Lane had invoked my old memories. This recipe is one of my favourites of my mom's.

Ingredients:
Wheat Flour
1 cup
Beetroot
1
Onion
2
Red Chilly
5
Ginger
1 inch
Garlic
4
Oil
3 tbs
Salt
To Taste

Procedure:
1. Mix water and flour and knead it to make a soft dough. Leave the dough for about half an hour.
2. Chop the onion into small  pieces.
3. Peel the skin of the beetroot and grate it. Keep it aside.
4. Heat 1 tbs of oil in a pan,  add red chillies and chopped onion. Fry till the onion becomes golden color.
5. Then add the chopped ginger and garlic. Fry for 2 mins.Transfer it into bowl and allow it to cool down. Then grind them into fine paste.
6. Heat 1 tbs of oil in the same pan, add grated beetroot and fry till raw smell goes out.
7. Now add the ground paste and mix well. Fry till the water evaporates.
8.Now roll out the small balls of the dough.Spread the beetroot paste over the roll. Then place another roll over this paste.
9. Heat the tawa and place rolls over it. Sprinkle oil and flip it after golden brown patches appears on it.Sprinkle oil drops on other side also. Cook till it is well done.
The hot Beetroot Paratha is now ready. Serve with Chutneys or Tomato Ketchup.
