Its been 2 months now in the blogging world, reached 50 posts and most important is that I found so many wonderful friends. I would like to thank each one of my blogger friends who have supported and encouraged me from the beginning. It was a pleasure to meet you all, read your amazing recipes and to be inspired...I know I have a long way to go and expect your support in the journey of my GOOD FOOD :)
Colorful chapathis are not just kids favorite, everyone appreciates the color and taste. Beetroot chapathi is another bread like Spinach chapathi, to trick your kids to eat the colorful veggie. You can make it spicy or retain the natural sweetness of the beets by making less spicy.
1 cup Wheat flour
1 small Beetroot, grated (Less than 3/4 cup)
1 tsp Cumin seeds
1 tsp Chilli powder
1" piece Ginger
Cook the grated beetroot slightly. I kept in microwave for a minute or two.
When its cooled, grind it along with cumin seeds, ginger and chilli powder in a blender. Add very less water and make a puree of it. Sprinkle some salt and oil on the wheat flour and mix well. Knead the flour by adding beetroot puree slowly to it. Add water if necessary for kneading and make a smooth dough. Let it rest covered for 15-20 minutes. Make medium size balls out of it, roll them out and fry them.
Serve hot with any curry or raita.
Makes about 7-8 medium size chapathis.
