Add salt and semolina to the wheat flour, mix well.
Now add the beetroot paste and mix well to make a semi stiff dough.

Cover and let sit aside for 15-20 minutes.
Make small lemon size balls with the dough.
Roll out the balls to give them a circular shape ( use dry wheat flour for dusting )
Deep fry the rolled poori's in hot oil.

Let the poori puff up to turn on other side to fry.
