BM #92 Day 25 - 

For the letter 'Y' I have chosen to highlight 'Yerra Gummadi'  which means 'Red Pumpkin in Telugu. This Roti is made with grated pumpkin, spices, Ragi flour and wheat flour. 

I had something else planned for this letter but later on realized that I have not used Ragi flour in this series and that I felt was gross injustice to the healthy flour. So last minute change of plans made this roti happen. I am sure I will be making this nutritious roti often.

Ingredients - 

Ragi Flour 1/2 cup
Wheat Flour 1/2 cup
Pumpkin, peeled and grated 3/4 cup
Coriander leaves, finely chopped 2 Tbsp
Salt, Red Chili Powder, Ajwain as needed
Warm Water 2-3 Tbsp (or as needed)

Method Of Preparation -

In a mixing bowl, Add Ragi flour (for some reason I dry roasted the flour), wheat flour, grated pumpkin, chopped coriander leaves, salt, red chili powder, ajwain and mix well.

Since the pumpkin will release some moisture, take care not to add too much water to knead into a soft dough.

Divide the dough into 5 equal portions, roll out into 5 inch thin discs using as much dry flour as needed for dusting.

Gently transfer the rolled out disc onto a hot griddle.

Flip it when there are bubbles visible. Spray some oil and cook on both sides until done.

Remove onto an insulated container and continue with the rest of the dough.

Serve with Yogurt for a filling meal.

  2. Wow, adding pumpkin directly to the dough is definitely an incredible way to sneak this vegetable. Ragi flour addition is truly very brilliant Harini. Absolutely incredible.

  4. So glad you did right by ragi finally. It would have been so soft and yummy with the pumpkin. I want to try them even though I am not much of a ragi fan!

  5. Healthy , Nutritious and a thoughtful paratha . To get that Y fitted into that slot - excellent pick and a super delicious paratha .

  9. adding any grated veggie in flour directly makes it easy to handle. I loved the addition of grated pumpkin. This surely makes it a healthy and nutritious.

  10. Adding pumpkin gives it a wonderful colour and I guess it will also give a mild sweetness to the roti. With all the herbs, veggies and spices, the roti looks so tasty.
