Yes seems I am not done with the pumpkin dishes just yet and is raining pumpkin around here, that was one big pumpkin,DD2 did good at the pumpkin patch :) Half turned into delicious halwa, the other half landed in the fridge. Parathas seemed like a great way to use them easy but for the grating, it is a great exercise while watching TV the more boring the show the more vigorous the grating gets. These pumpkins I know are not grown with cooking in mind, they are hollow inside and the flesh stringy and not very sutiable for curries or stir frys. But since the texture didn't seem to matter for the Halwa or the parathas they morphed into delicious dishes.
1. 1 1/2 Cups grated Pumpkin
2. 2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
3. 2 tsp red chili powder
4. salt to taste.
1. Combine all the ingredients amd make a pliable dough, add a little bit more
wheat flour if too moist. I did not squeeze the liquid out of the grated pumpkin.
2. Make small round balls, press and fry them.
Serve hot with curry of choice, family enjoyed with some Almond Chicken.
Rolling parathas, don't come as naturally as a dosai but no worries, our blog friends come to the rescue.
