            Beetroot is low in fat, full of vitamins and minerals and packed with powerful antioxidants, Rich in vitamin C and most important it helps in absorption of iron. Beets are healthy no matter how you prepare them.
            I have served this beetroot appe with coconut chutney, or you can serve it with some spicy condiment or yogurt. It is prepared using 1 Tbsp oil.  A lot of people do not like beet, especially kids. If you don't like beetroot or any greens then adding them to the batter (idli, dosa, appam or Paratha Dough) is a great way to sneak them into your diet. And I am sure you will love the taste of twist. They are super easy to prepare, and there are lots of combinations that you can make. I suggest to make them for breakfast, and today I present one of my favorite combination, beetroot appe! So let's start.

    • Pour 1 - 2 tbsp batter into each groove/mold, cover and cook for 2 to 3 minutes and when the underside begins to brown turn the appe to the other side.
    • Flip the appe over and allow it to cook on all sides evenly
    • Drizzle some more oil at intervals, only if needed or if the beetroot appe are sticking to the sides of the pan.
    • As it cooks, continue to turn it until all sides are completely brown.

My Take :

  • Do not worry if your batter is watery, bread and semolina will absorb water.
  • You can add other veggies too instead of beetroot or with beetroot.
  • If beetroot is not available, you can use beetroot powder.
