Prep: 25 minutes
Cooking: 30 minutes
- To make fillings, in a mixing bowl, add the carrots, beetroot, onion and salt. Mix well and let it rest for 10 minutes. Transfer it in a muslin cloth and squeeze well to remove excess moisture.
- Now transfer to a separate bowl and add potatoes, mint, coriander, green chillies, ginger and powdered spices. Add salt to taste and mix well.
- To make the paratha dough, in a mixing bowl, add wheat flour and salt. Mix well, add water and knead a semi-soft dough.
- To make beetroot paratha, divide the dough into small equal roundels, coat with dry flour and flatten it with your hands. Make a pocket by shaping it into small bowl size, keeping the centre bit thicker than the sides.
- Fill a spoonful of vegetable mixture in the cavity or as required but do not overfill. Seal the dough balls by joining the sides together.
- Coat the dough balls once again with the dry flour and roll the dough ball into a thick paratha. Use the left forward and right backward motion to roll the paratha while applying pressure.
- Cook the paratha on a hot pan or a tawa on both sides until brown spots appear. Apply ghee and flip. Cook on both sides.
