 Again server down n wasnt able to blog for two days! thank god the problem is over, Today is a special chappati made for my junior who always makes a big fuss when it comes to eating vegetables. Always have to try to new ways to make him eat veggies, Bought some beets this week n was thinking as what to do, then thought why not try making Chappati. Grated beet, added flour spiced with nigella n jeera seeds, n made chappati. Was very happy with my invention coz my son enjoyed having his red chappati very much. Served with mixed lentils curry it was a super combo, my next post is the recipe for the curry only. Sending them to Healing foods- Beetroot guest hosted by Priya Mitharwal event by Siri and to
