I know many of u will be definitely surprised to see again a dish with butternut squash,i was pushed to make some dishes coz of some leftover butternut squash puree, thats y i prepared this parathas along with quinoa flour and quinoa flakes spiced up with anardana seed powder which is known as pomegranate seeds powder and cumin seeds..For the first time am using anardana powder in my cooking, that too in paratha none at home found out the addition of anardana powder...Living in abroad have many advantages as well as many disadvantages, we cant get many Indian spices here that much easily,i couldnt able to find out the whole anardana seeds but fortunately i picked a packet of anardana powder from Indian groceries when we went for our weekened shopping, however anardana seeds are usually dry roasted and ground as fine powder while making dishes, using directly anardana seeds as powder will definitely go for less cooking process than the seeds na...Needless to say that this paratha is very healthy, filling, colourful and a guilt free dish to enjoy either for lunch or for dinner with a spicy side dish..Sending this parathas to CWS-Anardana Seeds guest hosted by Jayasri, event by me and to CWF-Quinoa guest hosted by Priya Mitharwal and finally to CMT-Rotis guest hosted by Akheela, event by Jagruti..
