The other day I was just talking about this to mu hubby, that we ought to try out beetroot parata, but he was a bit doubtful of it turning out good. He is very choosy as far as food is considered. I dropped the idea. But then, when I came across this preparation of yours I was delighted. When beet mixed roti can be prepared, beet stuffed parata can also be. It looks really gr8!!!!

Love,
Ash................:-)
