BEETROOT PARATHA


Time to prepare : 30 minutes
Serves : 2

Beetroot is a good source of fiber they are also low in calories and naturally sweet. It can normally be eaten as salads but kids despise salads. So you can use this recipe to include beetroot in their diet.
Thanks to my friend Manisha for the recipe.
