Beetroot Paratha | Chukandar Parantha - Vegan & GF

Share with friends and family

We wish people to always be in the PINK OF HEALTH ; and this vegetable beetroot is just true to this phrase . Beetroot is a powerhouse of nutrients and many vitamins . It is known to be a natural remedy to  fight anemia and iron deficiency . Raw beetroot juice is used for detox and cleansing of the liver . Cooked beetroots are rich in fibre which is also very essential for the body .
As the beetroots when eaten raw have an earthy smell many people do not like to eat it raw , especially children..so as I say sneak them into parathas and feed them so that they will eat .
My blog has many recipes for delicious parathas which are kids as well as adult friendly. You may check the recipes below.

Preparation Time : 30-45 mins
Cooking Time : 30 mins
Makes : 8-10 parathas
Complexity : Medium High

beetroot paratha, beetroot roti, parantha , beet paranta, beetroot parantha,chukandar paratha, chukandhar paranta,


2 cups whole wheat flour
1 medium size beetroot ( peeled and boiled until soft)
2-3 green chillies finely chopped ( adjust as per your level of spice)
corriander leaves finely chopped
1 tsp ajwain / carom seeds (optional)
1 tsp white sesame seeds (optional)
salt as needed
oil to roast the parathas


Grate the beetroots using a grater . Mix the grated beetroot, green chillies , corriander, carom and sesame seeds well with your fingers such that the flavors are released well. Now add the wheat flour, salt and knead a soft pliable dough. Keep covered and let it rest for 10 mins.
Tip : Donot add too much water in the beginning. The juice from grated beetroot is enough to help in kneading the dough. Incase you need extra, just sprinkle as and when you need.

Pinch out medium sized balls from the dough,, dust them with flour and keep ready.

Roll out into a medium thick paratha using the rolling pin on a clean and hard surface.

Heat a tawa / griddle and roast the parathas evenly on both sides by smearing about 1 tsp oil . Serve hot with dal , thick curd/yogurt and some pickles.

  1. Very nice! Though we prepare Paranthas using the other vegetables, we have not tried Beetroot so far.

    1. Thanks for the comment and pls do try sir. It is a very easy and healthy option to sneak in beetroots in children's menu as most kids have a resistance towards this vegetable . There are various other paratha recipes also listed in my blog.
