Beet chappathi n' more

I usually add different flavours to plain chappthis just to make my lil one eat it.This is one of them.He likes this because of the color.

Ingredients

Atta/Wheat flour - 1 and 1/2 cups
Beet root - 2tbsp(grated)
Jeera - 1 and 1/2tsp
Garlic - 1 pod(optional)
Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Garam masala - 1tsp
Salt - as needed
Oil - 2tsp
Warm water - as needed.

Method

In pan, heat oil and fry jeera,chopped garlic.Then add grated beet root and saute for 2 min.s.Add chilli and garam masala powder and fry till it's cooked.In a bowl, add this beet mixture,wheat flour,salt and warm water and mix well into a chappathi dough.Let it rest for about 30 min.s and make equal sized balls out of this dough.Rooll each into chappathis and cook them in a hot tawa.I served this colorful beet chappathi with Gobi subzi.





Few days ago, i had tried Seema of Recipe junction's Palak paneer.It was a huge hit with family n' friends.My son was licking his fingers for the last drop of palak.(he rarely does that :))).The only change i made to her recipe was, i grinded the sauted spinach for the smooth texture.I stongly recommend her delicious recipe to all of you to try.Thanks Seema for sharing.

Tips: Using warm water for making chappthi dough makes chappthi softer.Again letting the dough rest for 30 minutes or so helps also.
