Butternut Paratha

This is an outcome of my recent cooking explorations. Last week when I shopped at ASDA greek butternut caught my hubby's eyes and we bought butternut for the first time. I really did not know what to cook with that. Was not sure if its a fruit or a vegetable. Finally I decided to make Paratha,i.e Butternut Paratha. This recipe really tastes very delicious. Want to know how to prepare? it goes...

  • 4 cups of wheat flour.   
  • 2 cup of  grated butternut.
  • 1  medium sized onion.
  • Cumin seeds,garam masala powder,oil & salt to taste.
  • Prepare wheat dough for paratha.
  • Grate about two cups of butternut.
  • Cut onion into small pieces.
  • Add grated butternut,onion slices,cumin seeds and garamasala and fry these with oil  for about two minutes.Once cooled, prepare lime sized balls of this.
  • Coat these balls with wheat dough and roll these into Parathas.
  • Heat the tava  and roast the parathas on hot tava (both sides to be roasted).
  • Apply oil (if required) while roasting.
  • Serve Butternut Paratha with plain curd and pickle or carrot raitha.
