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.


  • 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


  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.


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