Back from a super fun, sweet and short, Arya’s birthday special vacation. Here in Bayonne, the weather is cold with snow all around.
When I opened the refrigerator and digging in to find veggies for dinner, I found this big, round beetroots which I bought a week ago and preparing in my mind to make beetroot curry in Indian style. While doing so, I suddenly changed my mind to make something special with this crimson colored veggie. And that resulted in making rotis (indian bread). I’m very happy with the result. To my eyes, they looked like Red-Velvet (just because of the color) and I named them as Red-Velvet Roti’s 😉
These are the soft and healthy one’s with veggie blended.
Medium Size Beet root finely grated
Olive oil – 1/2 tsp (Any oil upto your preference)
turmeric powder – 1/2 tsp
jeera powder – 1/2 tsp
coriander powder – 1/2 tsp
red chilli powder – 1/2 tsp
salt to taste
water for dough kneading
Put oil in a pan and add grated beet root and cook for 2-3 minutes and then add turmeric powder and salt and cook till raw smell goes for 5 minutes. Lastly add all the powders mentioned above for the flavor and let it cook for 2-3 minutes on medium flame. Keep it aside after cooking and let it cool down.
Take a bowl and add the wheat flour and the cooked favored beetroot and mix till both are incorporated by adding water drops in between and make a dough and the color changes to beautiful red color. If you like you can add a 1 tsp oil and knead well and keep it aside for 30 minutes.
Later take the dough and make small lemon size balls and roll them to make round rotis and heat them on the pan. The beautiful and healthy Indian Bread and ready to serve with Raitha or any gravy curry.With Love, ♥Prashanthi♥
