Instructions
  1. After peeling the beetroots, cook them in water until tender. Then grate and grind to form a paste with the water used for cooking. (I used 2 small beetroots which yielded 1/4 cup of pulp).
  2. Now mix together the whole wheat flour, beet pulp, sugar, salt, ghee, sesame seeds with water as required to form a soft dough.
  3. Now preheat the oven to 180 degree centigrade.
  4. Take a ball of dough and roll it to form a thin roti. Prick holes on it evenly using a fork.
  5. Now cut diamond shapes or any shapes of your choice. (see to that you do not cut them too small, or it will be difficult to flip the sides, while baking)
  6. Place them on a baking tray and bake for 15 minutes, flipping them all once after 8 minutes.
