Number of Puris: 20

How long it takes: 30 minutes

Pumpkin is a gourd in the same family as Ash gourd etc. It has either orange or yellow pulp depending upon the variety of seeds. It is available in plenty and has versatile uses. I have already put up pumpkin curry, a Pumpkin Coconut gravy recipe, and now here comes a more exotic type – Pumpkin Puri. This is a Goan recipe which I borrowed from one of my Goan friends and these puris are similar to the ‘Mangalore’ buns I put up earlier. This is an excellent party and lunch box dish as well. Here come the puris!

What you need to have:

1. Grated pumpkin – 1 cup

2. Wheat atta – 1 cup

3. Sugar – 1/4 cup (Jaggery can be used as well)

4. Pure ghee – 2 teaspoons

5. salt – a pinch

6. Cooking oil – 1 cup ( to fry)

Good to remember:

1. The colour of this dish could depend upon the colour of squash and also sugar or jaggery.

2. The dough should be smooth and should knead properly.

3. There is no need to dust while rolling.

4. Do fry on medium flame for better results.

5. This dish will taste great on the next day like buns than hot.
