Doodhi Na Paratha/ Lauki ka Paratha

Stuffed with grated doodhi/ lauki/ calabash/ bottle gourd (it goes by many names), this paratha tastes better when served with raita or aloo vegetable curry. Doodhi paratha is another healthy and delicioud flat bread recipe. I hope you enjoy it!

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 to 35 minutes
Servings: 4 (8 parathas)


For the Stuffing:
  • 3 cups doodhi, grated
  • 2 teaspoon dry amchur powder

  1. First, add salt to the grated doodhi and leave it on the side for ten minutes. Then, transfer the doodhi to a cloth and squeeze out the excess water.
  2. Transfer the doodhi to a bowl, add all the above mentioned ingredients under stuffing and mix it well.
  3. Next, combine the wheat flour and salt in a bowl. Mix well and knead into a soft dough using enough water. Make eight round balls.
  4. Roll the dough into a circle 4 inches in diameter. Place the stuffing in the center and bring the edges together at the center to seal tightly.
  5. Roll it out again into a circle 6 inches in diameter using little flour.
  6. Heat the tava or pan on medium heat and cook each paratha, using a little oil, until golden brown spots appear on both sides.
  7. Repeat the procedure with rest of the balls.
