Pumpkin Paratha | Paratha Recipe

I was lagging interest in blogging and when I shared my status in FB ,blogger friends suggested me to take a break .I too thought but things becomes worse as I was more stressed up in free time.When kids are at home I feel engaged and lively and once they left for school my mood changes so today I decided to write a post to keep me engaged.

After ages  I clicked pictures  a day before to blog and hence this recipe.

 Pumpkin is one vegetable which I rarely buy and when I buy  mostly I use it in sambar. Last week I mainly bought it to try a baked goodie with it .Unfortunately I couldn't bake any bread and I just managed to make this paratha for our Sunday supper. Since this paratha has all masalas/spices in it we don't need to worry about any side just a dollop of butter along with pickle/curd will do.

This can also be packed as lunch box together with some salad.In this recipe I have made puree with cooked pumpkin ,added to flour and prepared the dough together with spices.If you prefer you can either prepare as stuffed version also but this way is more easy than stuffed version as nothing spills out in making it.

Preparation time: 10 mins
Resting time: 20 mins
cooking time: 20 mins
