How to make Eggless Red Velvet Beetroot Muffins Recipe

  1. To begin making Eggless Red Velvet Beetroot Muffins, we have to first prepare the beetroot puree

  2. To make the beetroot puree along with 1/2 cup of water in a pressure cooker for about 4 to 5 whistles. Once cooked well, allow it to cool and then puree the beetroot in a mixer grinder.

  3. Measure 1/2 cup beetroot puree and keep aside. (only add a little water to the blender if necessary)

  4. Put your oven on preheat at 180°C and line your muffin tray with cupcake liners.

  5. In a bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Keep aside.

  6. In another bowl, add curd and sugar, and beat it at high speed till sugar gets dissolved.

  7. Next, add oil and vanilla essence to the curd mixture and beat till oil is well incorporated.

  8. Now add the beetroot puree and lemon juice (or vinegar) and beat at low speed till everything is well mixed.

  9. Next, add the sifted flour mixture in 3 parts and mix at lowest speed till just combined. Do not over mix the Eggless Beetroot muffin batter.

  10. Pour the prepared muffin batter into the moulds and sprinkle some white chocolate chips on top. 

  11. Bake the Eggless Beetroot muffins at 180°C for about 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

These muffins takes a little longer than the usual muffins because of the added moisture from the beetroots.

Baking times also vary with ovens. So the best way to check if the muffins are done is to insert a toothpick or a knife and if it comes out clean then the muffins are done.
