Bhopalyachya Gharya or Ghrage - Pumpkin Sweet Puri or Flat Bread

This puri is sweet, so soft and creamy just melt in your mouth. Makes in minutes and superb taste. This so irresistible, that you will end up having 4-5 in a one shot. Must try recipe. 

Time: 20 minutes
Serve: 20


2 cups pumpkin(peeled and grated)
1 cup jaggery(adjust to taste)
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp clarified butter or ghee
oil to fry


1. Peel and then grate the pumpkin. Traditionally we use 'red pumpkin' but you can replace these with any variety of pumpkin or squash which is sweet in taste.

2. Heat deep non stick pan, add ghee, grated pumpkin and jaggery. Cook together until mixture comes together, cooked and almost all water evaporates.

3. Remove from the heat, Keep aside to cool.  Add whole wheat flour to pumpkin mixture. Knead to form a dough. The dough should not be too tight nor too elastic. Keep aside covered for 5 minutes.

4. Make small balls out of dough and pat it into a small puri with your hand or roll into puri.

5. Heat the oil in deep skillet. Fry puri until golden brown on medium heat. Drain the these on a tissue paper.

6. Serve hot or cold. 

1. Store gharya or flat-bread in airtight container for 7-10 days.
2. Always fry puri on medium heat.
3. You can replace whole wheat flour with half of wheat flour and half of semolina/suji.
4. Do not tempt add cardamom powder, it will disturb its taste.
