Pumpkin Parathas with Garlic Butter

 We all know how Suhaina's Garlic rolls has won the heart of lots of all bloggers, whoever tries it for the first time will definitely fall in love with it.  The aroma released from the garlicky butter while baking is simply irresistible.  Baking home made breads and working with yeast has become something very normal and usual in these days, thanks to bloggers, cookbooks and TV shows.
  Still if you are a learner or beginner in cooking and you are not so familiar in using yeast, yet you are tempted to make garlic butter, then this is the recipe for you.  I'm not comparing these with garlic roll, since that's the best, but still this can satisfy your  garlic rolls craving in the form of soft parathas.  In normal parathas you apply plain butter or oil in the middle of the dough, in this we have replaced the plain butter with this aromatic garlic butter.  Hope enjoy making this at home.

Makes 18 to 20 parathas
Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:
Wheat flour- 2 cups
Pumpkin puree- 1/2 cup
Salt- 1/2 tsp
Oil- 2 tsp
Water just enough to make a smooth dough

For the filling: ( Mix together all the ingredients to make the filling )
Butter- 2 tbsp ( at room temperature )
Grated garlic- 3 tsp
Dried Italian Herbs- 1 tsp
Salt to taste

Note:
Dried Italian herbs can also be replaced with finely chopped fresh coriander and mint leaves.

Method:
 Mix together flour and salt in a large bowl.  Make a well in the middle, add oil, pumpkin puree and enough water to make a smooth dough.  Cover the dough with a cling film and let it rest for 30 minutes.  Divide the dough into 18 to 20 equal rounds.  Flatten the dough slightly, apply garlic butter in the middle.  Cover the dough and make it into a round again.  Flatten the dough into 8 to 10 cm diameter.  Repeat the same process with the remaining dough.  Heat a tawa, place one paratha in the middle, when you see small bubble on top, turn it other side, apple little oil or ghee.  After a minute turn it to other side, apple some more ghee.  Remove it from the tawa and serve it immediately.  Serve the parathas warm with some spicy curries.  These parathas are at it's best while they are still warm.

To make pumpkin puree:
Peel and chop the pumpkin.  Stem it in a steamer for about 10 minutes, puree it in a blender without adding any water.

My Mom makes sweet jaggery puri's with the pumpkin puree which are to die for, but this looks equally tempting.. I love garlic butter, so anything with it is to die for;for me.
