  • 1 cup pumpkin puree canned or homemade
  • cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup grated jaggery
  • ¼ teaspoon saffron
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • ½ teaspoon cardamom powder
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg powder
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ cup whole wheat flour for rolling parathas
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 2 tablespoons ghee


  • Mix pumpkin puree, grated jaggery, saffron, cinnamon powder, cardamom powder, nutmeg powder and salt. Make s pliable dough by adding whole wheat flour. Add oil to the dough and knead it for few more minutes. Let the dough rest in the refrigerator for 20 mins.
  • Divide the dough into 8 balls. Roll each ball using some wheat flour into a 6-8 inch thin circle. Apply ghee to the rolled bread and then fold up to form layers and then fold it circular to form a disk. Parathas can also be made without layering by simply rolling the balls into 6-8 inch round parathas.
  • Now roll these discs (or the dough balls without layering) once again using dry flour to 6-8 inches diameter circle. Put the rolled paratha on a hot griddle and cook on both sides on high medium heat. Apply ghee on both sides.
  • Dust some powdered sugar over the paratha and serve hot or at room temperature with a glass of chilled milk or hot chai.
