Beetroot Paratha

Just a few months back cooking used to be my Bête Noire but lately I have started to fall in love with it. The more I cook, the more I love it. The best part is creating stuff everyday. Being creative to make the same old dishes more appealing and getting them right every time. Fortunately for me, I have my Mom(who just loves cooking) to help me out with new recipes and lend her experience.

Here is one of the recipes that I tried. As I was talking a few friends here I realized not many knew this recipe so I am posting it here. It is simple, easy, looks great, very healthy and great fun to prepare and eat. My Dad who hates beetroot also loved these parathas.

Beetroot Paratha

Yummy Beetroot Paratha


1 medium-sized grated Beetroot
2 cups wheat flour
1 tsp Red chilli powder
1/4 tsp Ajwain seeds (ಅಜಮೋದ/ಓಮಾ)
1/2 tsp cumin seeds (ಜೀರಿಗೆ)
1/2 tsp white sesame seeds/till seeds ( ಬಿಳಿ ಯೆಳ್ಳು)
1/2 tsp garam masala(optional)
salt to taste
water – to knead the dough


Mix all the ingredients above and knead to make dough with the same consistency as chapathi dough

Dough for beetroot paratha


Let the dough settle for about 30 minutes
Take small balls of dough and roll it out to make nice round parathas
How you fold is entirely up to you so have fun with the shape of your Parathas! Below are the pictures of how I have done it.
