Beetroot poori recipe with quick video, step wise detailed picture. Best for kid’s lunch box or tiffin box. Goes well with plain coconut chutney.

Wanted to try beetroot poori for long time. I made it just as we make palak puri. And the same can be made as chapati/ roti also. Made both and loved chapati a lot. To my surprise, Vj loved it. After a lot of tempting comments in my post in social media about the combo of poori with coconut chutney, I just made coconut chutney for this poori. It was not only tasty but the white chutney with the bright pink poori was even treat to eyes.

After making the video, hogged those with chutney for lunch. Had the same dough for dinner as chapati. Gave some for Vj thinking he may not like, but he told it was very nice. Was double happy since i finally made this recipe as well as we both liked it. If you are packing for your kids lunch box, you can try using a small lid to cut out as mini puris. Or even cookie cutter is a great idea to cut out their favorite shapes. As in palak poori, the ajwain not only adds flavour, also aids digestion.

Notes

  • Do not over cook beetroot or the poori. Otherwise it will affect the colour of poori too.
  • Oil should be hot, otherwise poori wont puff up. Do not keep the rolled out poori for long time as it will not also puff.
