The Beetroot Puri is an attractive snack with a fabulous flavour and beautiful colour. The dough of whole wheat flour and beetroot puree has a pleasantly sweet flavour, which is complemented by spice powders that add shades of spice while also highlighting the sweetness at the same time.

Take care not to add water while making the dough because the beetroot puree is enough to bind the flour together into a stiff dough. If the dough gets soggy, then the puris will get oily.

Serve Beetroot Puri as a snack with some pickle and chutney or as a meal with a subzi or curry of your choice.

   Hi Manjiri, Yes you can make parathas but just make sure the dough is semi-soft and not so stiff
