Beets Chapati & Mini puris




This year for Valentine's Day I tried making chapati with beets.  I steamed the beets and blend in the dough and later cutting into heart shaped pieces and infusing with the dough.  I also made mini puris.

3.  Roll the beets chapati dough thin with a rolling pin and cut out the desired shape with a sharp knife.
4.  Roll the plain chapati dough to a cirle.  Place the cut out shapes of the beets chapati dough and gently roll so it fuses with the plain chapati.
5.  Place it on a hot griddle and cook.  Apply oil and cook and flip to turn to cook on the other side till there are golden brown spots.
