  2. Take one part of the dry mix in a bowl; add 1 tsp oil, and spinach puree (enough to knead into stiff dough).If puree is not enough; you could sprinkle some water to get stiff dough. Cover and keep aside.
  3. In another bowl, take the 2nd part of the dry mix add 1 tsp oil, and beetroot puree (enough to knead into stiff dough). Cover and keep aside.
  4. To the 3rd part of the dry mix, add 1 tsp oil and water (enough to knead into stiff dough). Cover and keep aside.
  5. With the help of a rolling pin, roll out the prepared dough’s separately. Make sure each dough is evenly rolled out. Flatten as thin as possible.
  6. Now tightly begin to roll (similar to sushi roll) the beetroot dough.
  7. Place it on the edge of the flattened whole wheat dough. Roll into a log (like a sushi roll) again.
  8. Yet again place this log (beetroot and whole wheat as prepared in step7) on the edge of the flattened spinach dough. Roll into a log (like a sushi roll).
  9. Now gently press the prepared log (containing beetroot dough, whole wheat dough and spinach dough). Make sure the log is smooth all over.
  10. Cut the log into 1/2 cm thick pieces. Roll out finely to flatten the pieces and fry till golden brown.
  11. Take them out on a kitchen towel first and then serve immediately.

Garnishing:

  1. Garnish the serving plate with a bowl of sour cream dip.
  2.  Place some sticks of carrot and cucumber in the dip.
  3. Place the rainbow crisps and serve immediately.

Note:Consume immediately. Not suitable for storing as the spinach and beetroot would make the crisp moist in sometime.

Kiddie tip: Ask your little chef’s (kids) to help you prepare the colourful dough. It would be a great activity for them and they would be proud of helping mom in the kitchen!
