Pumpkin Lacha Paratha

 I'll be running two weeks of blogging marathon from today onwards, i choosed cooking with colours as theme for the first week of this fantastic event, so this week my dishes will be quite colourful and definitely delicious,check out other bloggers running this 16th edition of blogging marathon here.

For the first day of this marvellous blogging marathon, i wanted to post this colourful pumpkin lacha parathas prepared with home made pumpkin puree.These parathas tastes fabulous with minimum efforts and goes for flour,pumpkin puree, warm milk and oil.Lachha parathas are quite easy to prepare and its completely a filling dinner or lunch when served along with a spicy side dish..We enjoyed having this parathas with chicken kurma for our dinner.You can fold this parathas  many ways, i went for cutting the rolled dough as long strips and rolling them as like swiss roll.Once cooked, just push the sides of the paratha to release the layers and served them warm.You can conserve them very well for a day or two and serve warm by reheating them in a griddle or microwave oven.Sending to Veggie For A Month-Pumpkin guest hosted by Ruchikacooks,event by Priya and my own event Healthy Diet-Breakfast guest hosted by Roshni.



 2cups All purpose flour
1/2cup Pumpkin puree
1/2cup Warm milk/hot water
Salt
Oil as per need
Extra flour for dusting

Knead the flour, salt and a tablespoon of oil with warm milk and pumpkin puree, knead well as firm dough.

Brush the dough with oil and keep aside for an hour..Divide the dough as equal size portions and roll as circles..

Brush with some oil and sprinkle some flour over the rolled circles..Cut the circles as strips, arrange the strips one by one over themselves and roll tightly as a swiss roll.

Keep them aside again for an hour..now press lightly with rolling pin to give a round shape..

Heat few drops of oil, cook this rolled paratha on both sides by drizzling enough oil, until they get cooked well, once get cooked just push the sides to release the layers.

Serve hot with spicy side dish..

I love lacha paratha....you sound it so easy to make. I'm gonna definitely try it. Love the color the pumpkin has given to the parathas. Wonder if the pumpkin overpowered its taste, was it sweet?
