Gorgeous beetroot in a flat bread!! Seems delicious isn’t it? This gorgeously purple beetroot has some how lost love from kids. If beetroot curry happen to appear on my meal table, my kids try to escape from eating it up. The perfectly cooked soft beetroot cubes in the curry don’t fascinate them any more. Because the color and earthy taste of this veggie isn’t matching their taste buds. So it’s been few months that I stopped including this veggie in my vegetable to-buy list. But being a food blogger, my inner self was insisting me to find a solution to turn the beetroot hatred in to love. So I made a potential list of kids friendly recipes using beetroot. Like beetroot cutlet, beetroot bonda, beetroot paratha and so on. As per me, all these food should get in to the favorites list of my kids. Because I know their palate.
So today I initiated my goal of feeding the beautiful veggie to my kiddos through this pretty beetroot paratha or beetroot chapati. When the wonderfully colored beetroot is pureed and combined with flour along with spices, the overpowering smell of beetroot is considerably suppressed. Which is why the paratha seems pretty good in color and tastes awesome too.
This beetroot paratha seems very basic and flexible because it is. I have used garam masala and cumin powder as major flavor element. But you can use any other flavors that you love and your kids adore too. Like some mint leaves? If you love spicy paratha, have some minced green chillies too. I paired it up with plain yogurt and home made mango pickle, believe me it was yummy. My daughter who hates beetroot asked for second and third servings. So I am thoroughly convinced on how to make the kiddos veggie friendly. How about you?
