Beetroot Poori

Cooks in : 40 min Serves: 2 people

A small twist to a regular dish always makes it interesting! When I made these beetroot pooris, my family loved the bright colour and taste. Beetroot has a lot of health benefits. I used jowar flour and beetroot powder for this recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 Cup Sorghum/Jowar Flour
  • 1.5 Cup Water
  • 3 Tsp Beetroot Powder
  • 1/2 Tsp Chilli Powder
  • 1/2 Tsp Salt
  • 1 Tbsp Oil
For Frying:
  • Oil for deep frying

Directions:

  1. In a 2 Ltr pressure cooker add all ingredients except jowar flour. Cook for a whistle.
  2. Release pressure and mix in jowar flour. Keep it covered with weight on for 15 minutes.*
  3. Open, knead briefly and divide them into small balls.
  4. Roll them into small pooris and deep fry them in oil.

Note:

1. Beetroot puree can also be used. In such case, adjust water accordingly.
