Step-By-Step Instructions and Images for Making Yellow Pumpkin Paratha
Take a portion of yellow pumpkin. Remove the seeds and skin. Chop the flesh into small cubes. Boil them in a container, adding just enough water. Cook till they become soft. Turn off the stove.
Alternatively, you can cook them in a pressure cooker up to 2 whistles and simmer for 5 minutes. Turn off the heat. Open the cooker lid, when the pressure releases naturally.
Drain the excess water from the pumpkin cubes. Mash them nicely, so that there are no lumps.
In the mean time, crush ginger, garlic, and green chilies. You can use a vegetable chopper for this.
Put pumpkin pulp into a wide mixing bowl. Add ginger-garlic-green chili paste, wheat flour, gram flour(chickpea flour), finely chopped coriander leaves, sesame seeds, carom seeds, garam masala powder, turmeric powder, oil, sugar, and salt.
Mix them together. Gently knead, adding water little by little to get a smooth and pliable dough.
Divide the dough into many lemon-sized balls. Roll each of them, dusting wheat flour, to make 6-7 inch diameter discs.
Heat a griddle or flat pan. Add a few drops of oil on it. Place a disc on it. Keep the heat medium-high. Add a few drops oil or ghee and cook it both sides till golden brown.
