Ingredients: Wheat Flour - 1 cup Grated Beetroot/Beet - 1 cup Green Chilli Paste - 1 tsp Ginger/Adrak Paste - 1 tsp Chat Masala - 1 tsp
Coriander/Dhania Powder - 1 tsp
Cumin/Jeera Powder - 1 tsp Garam Masala or any spice mix - 1/4 tsp Cilantro/Coriander Leaves - few sprigs

How to make Beetroot Paratha:
Peel the beetroot and grate it. Finely chop cilantro leaves.
In a mixing bowl, add grated beetroot. Add chilli paste, ginger paste, chat masala, coriander powder, cumin powder, garam masala, cilantro and salt. Mix all the ingredients well and set it aside for 20 minutes or longer. This will soften the beets.
Now add wheat flour, little at a time and knead to form a soft dough. Add about 2 tsp oil and knead well. Cover and let the dough rest for about an hour.
Divide the dough into 6 balls and roll each one into a round roti dusting some flour.
Heat a tawa/griddle and roast the parathas both sides. Apply little butter or oil while roasting the parathas. Enjoy Beet Parathas with yogurt and/or curry.
