BEETROOT PARATHA

Wheat flour ---- 2 cups
Beetroot ---- cooked and greated --- 1/2 cup
Salt to taste
Ajwain --- 1/4 tea sp
Fennel seeds --- 1/2 tea sp
Red chilli powder --- 1/2 tea sp
Butter or ghee ---- 1 tab sp
oil for frying

Method :----
Dry roast fennel and ajwain seeds till nice aroma comes out and crush them.
Take wheat flour and add salt to taste, red chilli powder, ajwain and fennel powder,ghee and add enough water to make a soft dough.
This dough should be like our normal paratha dough
Make small balls out of this dough and press then in to circles and fry then on a hot skillet(tawa) and fry with 1/2 tea sp oil both side into a nice color
serve hot with any curry
I enjoyed this with drumstick and tomato curry, tomato and cucumber salad, fried green chilli.
This is for my dear friend priya for her first event FIC - PINK /ROSE is started by my one more friend SUNSHINEMOM
