    Beetroot-Paneer Paratha - delightful colour, ofcourse, taste as well!!

    Select a medium fresh tender beet root. Cut into 4 segments, after removing the tips.
    Boil water, drop them in it, cover the vessel and switch off the stove.
    After 30 mts, remove peel and mince.

    Wheat flour - 2 cups

    Minced beetroot - 1 cup

    Grated paneer - ½ cup

    Salt, hing

    Red chilli powder - 2 tsp

    Oil - 2 tsp

    Make dough with all the above ingredients and rest for 30 mts.

    Roll into balls & make parathas the usual way.

    Serve with any dhal or raitha, this wholesome paratha.

    I refrigerate the dough in ziplock covers as well for 3, 4 days.

    Sugar powder - 1-2 tbsp (to taste)

    Grated banana - ½ cup

    Carrot & Black Grape Juice - all for your good health, Friends!

    If the black grapes are sour, a little sugar or substitute may be added. Otherwise it tastes good, plain & freshly made.
    Use fresh carrots.

    Grated carrots - 2 cups

    Deseeded black grapes - 1 cup

    Ice-water - 1 cup

    Liquidise, strain through a fine sieve and serve immediately.
    I used my Bullet Magic for this!
