Beet root Phulka recipe or Beetroot chapathi recipe with detailed photos

Beetroot phulka or beetroot chapathi is a colorful and tasty version of regular Indian flat bread or chapathi. It is filled with the richness of beetroot and healthier than the regular chapathi  or phulka recipe. This recipe I usually prepare for my kid's lunch box along with some kid of gravy.

    What is the difference between chapathi (roti) and phulka?

    Chapathi and phulka are made with same wheat dough. The difference is in its preparation technique, size and texture.

    Phulka is usually smaller in size, one side is cooked on tawa where as the other side on direct heat. The phulka puffs up due to formation of steam inside it. Phulka is tastier and softer than the regular chapati or roti.

    Chapathi is made larger than the phulka but it is cooked on tawa. When one side is cooked, then flip and cook the other side also. Chapathi also puffs up, but we need to press gently with a spatula to make it a ball.

    How to Make beetroot phulka or beetroot chapati?

    Beetroot phulka or beetroot chapathi making quite easy. The cooked beetroot paste is mixed with wheat flour. It is then seasoned and kneaded to make a thick and soft dough. The dough kept untouched for a few minutes to build up its texture. Then made into small balls, flattened and cooked on the tawa or direct heat.
