Are you bored of eating the same breakfast everyday? And you want to make something fast, easy to cook and healthy. Today we are making beetroot crepes
A crêpe or crepe is a type of very thin pancake. Crêpes are usually of two types: sweet and savory. This recipe is a fun way to add some color and nutrients to a classic breakfast. Beetroot is a great vegetable and using them in this crepe recipe is a sneaky way to introduce some extra health benefits in a fun way!
This recipe can be used for different meals, like breakfast, lunch, dinner, or even dessert... Just change up the beetroot crepe toppings and it can be sweet or savory!
Ingredients for Beetroot Crepe Recipe
Beetroot – 4 Medium
Chickpeas flour or Gram flour – One and a half cup
Turmeric Powder – Half Teaspoon
Salt – 1 Teaspoon or as per taste
Carom Seeds – 1 Teaspoon
Oil for cooking
1 Cup - Approx 150 Grams
To prepare this recipe, take 4 medium beetroots.
Peel off the skin of the beetroots and then chop them followed by boiling them in water for 15-20 mins
After 20 mins, take them out of water and let them cool down, you can also run them under cold water
Make a puree out of the beetroots. I am adding a small amount of water while blending them
Add the puree to a fresh bowl
To a bigger bowl add 400 grams of chickpeas flour, add half teaspoon of turmeric powder, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of carom seeds, mix the dry ingredients, then add the beetroot pure till you get a smooth running batter, add some water to get the right consistency
Heat a pan and add some oil - brush the oil evenly across the pan.
Once the pan is hot, add 1-2 ladles of batter to the pan and spread it in a circular fashion like a pancake/crepe. You can choose the thickness as per your choice
Cook it over medium heat for 2-3 minutes. Once the crepe is cooked on one side, gently flip it
Let it cook for another 2-3 minutes on the other side
You can also add vegetables on the crepe and cook it
I like to add some finely chopped tomatoes, onion, green chilies while making it
