BEETROOT PARATHA (SAVOURY BEETROOT FLATBREAD)

BEETROOTS are one of the healthiest vegetables, but generally disliked by a number of people! They provide us with a lot of iron, but just a slice or two doesn’t help!

Apart from making a vegetable, beetroot parathas taste delicious and appeal to the young as well as old. Best as breakfast or as a change for lunch or dinner!!

An artist by nature, I love painting, travelling to different places and photographing nature, gardening, crochet, reading, etc. It's my nature to give my best to anything and everything I do. From a person who could cook very few dishes..... I have converted myself to a person who now can cook varied dishes! I like perfection in all my work. Reading a lot of recipes, watching different famous chefs' cooking shows on television and observing their methods, techniques and tips very closely and studiously ....is what has made me a very good cook today. Though there are numerous recipes I haven't tried my hand at..... there are many other in which I have gained exerpertise only by trial and error! I still watch all interesting cookery shows on TV to gain more knowledge on cooking techniques of other cultures from here and abroad!! Nowadays, I have started adding healthy twists to my dishes as and when I can without compromising on their original taste. Started this blog to share a few recipes of mine with all other cooking enthusiasts! Happy cooking to all! 😃
