Lauki paratha recipe - Dudhi bhoplyachi paratha recipe - How to make bottle gourd paratha

Lauki paratha recipe - Today I have come up with an easy to prepare lauki or bottle gourd paratha recipe. White gourd is a healthy vegetable which many do not like. Therefore I have prepared paratha out of this vegetable which is not only healthy but tasty too.  This is a versatile dish which can be eaten at the time of breakfast, lunch or dinner.  The dough of this paratha can be stored in the fridge for two days. It tastes great when eaten with ghee, spicy curry, sabzi, curd, pickle, chutney or tomato ketchup along with some drink  like buttermilk or lassi.  The stuffed parathas can also be made using the same lauki mixture. 

Preparation time 15 minutes
Cooking time 20 minutes
Yield - 8 parathas.

  • 2 cups wheat flour (use more if required)
  • 2 cups grated white gourd / lauki / dudhi bhopla

  • 1/2 tsp chilli powder
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • 1/4  tsp cumin seeds powder / jeera powder
  • 7-8 curry leaves, roughly chopped
