Beet root Parantha of the easiest and good ways to get your kid to eat beetroot which is a good source of protein, dietry fibre and is high in important minerals and vitamins required by our body.

Has no fat and no cholestrol so needless to say how good it is for adults too.I like its bright red/purple colour which is due to betalain pigments. Instead of using artificial colours beetroot can be used to make any dish colourful.

I started making betroot paranthas just recently after eating at my cousin's place and beleive me its not that bad..:)


  • Whole wheat flour - one cup
  • Ghee/oil- 2 tablespoon
  • Beetroot(small)-1/2 grated
  • water- enough to knead the dough
  • salt-1/2 teaspoon(to taste)
  • Ajwain(carom seeds)- 1 teapoon


  • Mix all the ingredient in whole wheat flour(atta)
  • Add little water at a time and knead into dough
  • Divide into eqaul round balls
  • Take these dough balls one at a time and roll into a parantha with the help of rolling pin
  • Shallow fry these paranthas on hot griddle(tawa) from both sides.

Serve hot with any curry or Simply with curd and achaar
