Pumpkin Tofu Paratha

Soft and healthy parathas suits prefectly either for morning breakfast or either for a super duper dinner, as i have a box of oven roasted pumpkin puree i simply prepared this wonderful soft and healthy parathas two days back for our dinner which i served simply with hot and spicy tomato thokku..Both together works out wonder and this combo rocks..Tofu in this pumpkin paratha gives a wonderful smooth and soft texture to this incredible paratha and its quite a better way to sneak this wonderful protein rich soyacurd in our daily menu...We simply loved having this fabulous,flavourful soft parathas..



2cups Wheat flour
1/4cup Yogurt
1/2cup Tofu (grated)
1/2cup Pumpkin puree
1/2tsp Ajwain seeds/Omam
1tbsp Kasuri methi
Salt
Oil for cooking

Mix the wheat flour,ajwain seeds,kasuri methi,grated tofu and salt in a bowl, add gradually the pumpkin puree and yogurt, knead everything as smooth dough (add water if needed)..Keep aside for 15minutes...Make 8 medium sized balls from the dough,dust the balls with enough flour and roll as round parathas using rolling pin...

Heat few drops of oil in a tawa, drop gently the flattened paratha,cook the paratha on both sides, drizzle oil if needed..serve with any sort of spicy side dish..
