Steam your beetroot. It is ready when you can insert a knife easily. Let them cool down and peel. You can use already cooked beetroot as well.
Blend your cooked beetroot with 1/3 cup of water.
Add your beetroot liquid to your flour.
Add 2 tsp of salt.
* You can add 2 tsp of oil as well to your dough if you want a richer dough. * I left the oil out, as it tastes great without it. The less ingredients, the simpler things are.

I don't have a rolling pin. But I used an old glass bottle to roll the dough out really thin. I can't stress this enough. Try and roll it as thin as you possibly can. Don't forget to dust your work surface and bottle with loads of flour.
