- 3 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 tbsp. oil to knead
- pinch of baking soda (opt)
- 1/2 tsp. sugar
- 1 small beetroot, boiled & pureed
- 1 cup tightly packed spinach, blanched & pureed
- salt to taste
- oil to shallow fry
- side dish to serve
Mix 1 tbsp. oil, sugar and baking soda to the flour. Now divide into three equal portions. To one portion, add the spinach puree and knead into a dough. Add water if required. Keep aside.
To the second portion, add the beetroot puree and knead into a dough with required quantity of water. Keep aside.
Knead the remaining flour with enough water and keep aside for 10-15 minutes. Roll all the three dough separately into a big circle, just like chapatti by dusting some flour.
Stack them one over the other and roll them tightly from one end to the other. Cut into 1/2" thick rounds. Roll out each round into a round paratha.
Heat a tawa and fry them on both sides till light golden in colour by drizzling some oil over it and around the edges. Serve them hot with any side dish.
