Beetroot Paratha

Beetroot Paratha Recipe

In the run for Innovative and different parathas, I thought of another veggie. This veggie is generally slotted into the salad category, but I have been doing much better with this in the last few months. I have made a burger of this, also made a sandwich out of this. Hence, I decided to attempt a Beetroot paratha,

Many people I meet do not like beetroot. The only way to make them eat this iron rich veggie is to make innovative stuff with tis.

Here is my attempt of making a paratha filling out of this.

Print Recipe
By Serves: 4 Prep Time: 10 minutes Cooking Time: 10 minutes


For the Paratha dough

  • 2 cups of whole wheat flour
  • Water to knead the dough
  • Salt to taste

For the Stuffing

  • 2 large beets
  • 1 medium finely chopped onion
  • 2 finely chopped green chillies
  • Half cup of finely chopped fresh coriander
  • ½ tsp garam masala
  • 1 tsp crushed ginger
  • Salt to taste


For the Paratha


Take the flour in a bowl


Knead a soft dough, like the way we do it for chapattis or any other stuffed paratha


Leave it to rest for a while approx. 10-15 mins

For the Stuffing


Grate the beetroots in a bowl.


Add the balance ingredients to this bowl.


Mix well.


Add the salt only when you are ready to roll the parathas, else the water released by the beet and onion will not help with rolling the parathas.


Your paratha mix is ready.

Let’s make the Paratha now


Make about 8 equal balls from the dough


Take a ball of dough and roll it on a rolling pan till about 3-4 inches in diameter


Add a couple of spoons of the stuffing in the centre.


Pull the ends of the rolled paratha over the stuffing and seal it properly. Remove any excessive dough if required.


Make this into a ball again


Roll it to about 6 inches in size or to whatever best size you can manage


Heat up a tava


Put the rolled paratha on the tava and cook on medium heat on both sides


Once the paratha is cooked, increase the heat and apply some butter to the paratha on both sides and fry on both sides


Bring it down from the fire and serve


This paratha goes well with hung curd dip mixed with black pepper. I would also love some grated cheese served on the paratha. Will give it a nice contrast and also beetroot & cheese combination is great.
