Beetroot paratha and Bhindi Masala

Hey guys! The recipe I am posting today is a simple afternoon meal recipe. You can make this as tiffin recipe also. Lets get cooking….


For beetroot paratha:

Boiled beetroot – 2 medium

Wheat flour – 1 cup

Makai atta/maize flour – 1/2 cup

Bajra atta/ Bajra flour – 1/4 cup

Garlic (grated) – 1/2 cloves

Salt as per taste

Oil – 2 tbsp

Ghee for greasing

Lukewarm water for kneading

For Bhindi Masala:

Bhindi – 500 grams

Onion (finely chopped) – 2 medium

Boiled potato (diced in small pieces) – 2 medium

Garlic paste – 1 tbsp

Turmeric powder/Haldi powder – 1 tsp

Kashmiri red chilly powder – 1 1/2 tbsp

Cumin-Coriander powder – 2 tbsp

Salt as per taste

Oil – 1 1/2 tbsp

Lemon juice – 1 tsp

Asafoetida/Hing powder – 1/4 tsp


For beetroot paratha:

1) Make a puree of the beetroot. In a bowl sieve both the flours. To this add the garlic, salt, beetroot puree and oil and crumble and mix all together. Now add the lukewarm water and knead into a soft dough. Knead this dough for 10 minutes at-least for the gluten to bind the dough well.

2) Cover the dough with cloth and keep aside for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes make 5 balls out of this dough. Roll one bowl using little flour.

3) Heat the tawa on medium flame add the rolled paratha and let it cook one side till bubbles appear on top. Then turn the other side and cook it. Now grease both sides with ghee and cook it on medium flame. Serve hot.

You can make this paratha for breakfast also and serve it with curd or pickle.

For Bhindi Masala:

1) In a wok take oil. Let it become warm. Now add the hing powder and garlic and saute for a few seconds. Now add the onions and saute till lightly pink. Now add the chopped bhindi and turmeric powder and mix it well. Cook the bhindi on medium while stirring in between till the bhindi is almost soft and all the stickiness is gone.

2) At this stage add the potatoes, red chilly powder, coriander cumin powder and salt and mix it well. Now cover and let it all cook together on medium flame for 10 minutes. Stir it after 5 minutes. After ten minutes switch off the gas, add the lemon juice and mix it well. Serve hot.

  11. I do love the color of the paratha! Will save this recipe for future use. Last time I tried with beetroot I did not get this color. It was darker. Hope this time it works out!

    Although I am not too fond of beetroot, the red paratha looks very appetizing Shail n I also like the idea of using 3 flours. Bhindi is a staple fav of our family… will try your variant and I may also try the paratha on 2nd thots…
