Lauki ka paratha, Lauki known as bottle gourd along with Indian spinach and spices to make a tasty flatbread. Step by step photos
Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time20 mins
Servings: 8 parathas

Ingredients

  • 1.5 cups Wheat flour
  • 1 cup Lauki grated bottle gourd
  • 1 cup Spinach Palak
  • 2 Potato boiled
  • 1 teaspoon Red chilli powder
  • 1 teaspoon Coriander seeds powder
  • ¼ teaspoon Black pepper powder optional
  • teaspoon Asafoetida
  • 1 teaspoon Ajwain Carom seeds
  • Salt - As needed

Instructions

  • Pressure cook potato firstly for 3 whistles. Peel off the skin, mash it.
  • Wash and finely chop spinach. Keep aside.
  • If you want, you can cook spinach slightly by sauteeing or blanching (boil water, add the leaves to it and boil for 2 mins, drain)
  • Peel the skin of lauki, Cut into four, remove the spongy thing, seeds in the middle. Grate it, keep aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, take all the ingredients and mix. No need to add water.
  • The lauki will leave out water as you knead, so keep kneading until the mixture forms a dough without cracks.
  • Make equal sized balls out of it. Dust with more atta or maida and roll out lauki ka parathas.
  • Heat tawa and cook the parathas side by side as you roll it. Drizzle some oil over hot tawa and cook the rolled parathas.
  • Drizzle oil over the parathas too while its getting cooked.
  • Cook in medium flame, gently pressing with the ladle now and then to ensure even cooking. Repeat to finish cooking all the lauki ka parathas.

Notes

  • Prepare everything only when you are ready to make(cook) the parathas. Because, the lauki will leave out water if you keep it for a while.
    If you keep the prepared dough for long time it will become too sticky. So make parathas as you prepare the dough.
  • Never add water, just keep kneading until a dough is formed.
  • In case the dough becomes sticky, sprinkle more flour and knead to make it non sticky.
  • Pepper powder makes it super spicy. So if you like spiciness and pepper flavor, you can add it.
  • I used sambar powder in place of red chilli powder, dhaniya powder.
  • Potato might be making it more tastier I guess as lauki is too bland in taste.
