A Fresh Twist on the Boring Kaddu (Pumpkin Multigrain Flatbread / Kaddu Ke Thalipeeth)

Bottle gourd or Lauki is such a boring vegetable that it is almost a repulsion from buying. However, it is so nutritious that you must include it in your diet. Well having bottle gourd curry is a strict no no and a big turn off for me. Yes, I do have the option to make Halwa but I cannot have it every week.

Hence, I have found an interesting way to include it in my breakfast and that is in the form of flat bread. I grate it along with the skin on to give a nice crunch. Extra crunch is contributed by onions.
I add some flax seeds and cumin seeds for the bite. While the combination of different flour makes it apt for an awesome breakfast.

This is how a boring vegetable is turned into an uncommon dish and given a nice makeover.

What You Need:

1 and 1/2 cup grated pumpkin
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/3rd cup corn flour (makki ka atta)
1/3rd cup besan
1/3rd cup bajre ka atta (Pearl Millet Flour)
1/4 cup coriander leaves chopped
2 onions finely chopped
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tbsp flax seeds
salt to taste
green chilies accoridng to the heat you can take
1 tsp red chili powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
2 tsp oil while kneading
Sudh Desi Ghee for Cooking

Steps To Make:

Place all the ingredients mentioned above in na big bowl. Drizzle Oil over the flour and knead into a smooth soft dough by adding water little by little.
Then cover and let it rest for 30 minutes

Knead the dough again on a flat surface and divide it into equal lemon size proportion.
Roll out on a flat surface  and give a nice round shape.
Mine is not a perfect round..Still its Ok !!

Brush a frying pan with little ghee or clarified butter and heat until hot.
Add paratha on the pan and cook for about 1 and 1/2 minutes. Turn it upside down, brush sime ghee and cook again .
