Butternut Squash Parathas

This is yet another attempt to try something different with the pumpkin/squash.  I prepared these parathas with some butternut squash one of my favorites in the squash group.  This again goes to my own event "Cooking For Kids - Pumpkin/Squash" started off by Kalyani.

2 cups flour
1 cup of cubed squash
1/2 handful of cauliflower stalk
coriander leaves plus stalk handful
1 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp cumin powder
3 big garlic cloves
1 to 2 tsp chopped green chillies
1/4 tsp red chilli powder
1/4 tsp amchur powder
1/4 tsp turmeric
1/4 tsp ajwain seeds
salt to taste

Process all the vegetables, salt and the spices together.  Leave this aside for few minutes.  Add the flour, a couple of tablespoons of oil and process it further till it comes together like a ball.  There is no need to add water.

Divide the dough into equal portions and roll it out into thin circles.  Cook the parathas on both sides without oil on a hot pan.  Smear some oil on the top side and flip it over to cook till brown spots appear and similarly the other side.

Enjoy these parathas with some raita or just plain curds!!!!
