Beetroot Paratha cooking Method:

Dough Preparation :

  1. Sieve the flour with the salt and 1 table spoon oil.
  2. Add the refined oil and mix well. Add enough water and make a semi-soft dough,as you would do  for any paratha/roti.Cover with a damp cloth and keep aside .

Filling Preparation :

  1. Heat oil in a pan and stir fry the finely chopped onions and green chilies till the onions become soft.
  2. Add the grated beetroot,salt,turmeric powder,cumin powder and mix well.Fry in low to medium heat till the beetroot is cooked.
  3. Add  the finely chopped coriander leaves and mix well.Our stuffing is ready.

Making Paratha :

  1. Knead the dough again and divide the dough into equal parts and roll into smooth balls.
  2. Take a dough ball and flatten it by pressing. Place stuffing  on it.
  3. Make it into a ball again.Seal the edges completely so that the  stuffing does not come out.
  4. Roll out the dough ball again into a circle.You can use flour to dust the surface where you will roll the paratha so that the paratha does not stick to the surface. Now your parathas are ready to be cooked.
  5. Heat oil in a frying pan and place the paratha on it,cook both sides equally,serve hot with yogurt or pudina chutney.
