Dudde poori recipe - Pumpkin poori recipe

Pumpkin poori in plate
Dudde poori recipe - Pumpkin is a healthy yellow vegetable with rich sources of vitamins and minerals. Growing kids must eat them regularly. Usually I make stir fry called dudde sukke with it. But this sukke is not much in demand and nobody likes to eat at home. So I have been making pooris with pumpkin to satisfy the taste bud of my family members. 

Today I am sharing with you all a sweet poori recipe prepared with pumpkin, wheat flour and jaggery. The combination of ingredients are awesome. The pooris are flavorful and loved by all. Pumpkin sweet poori is a teatime snack. It tastes best when served hot and accompanied by savoury snacks. If you have pumpkin in stock, making poori is one of the best ways to use it. It goes exceptionally well with hot tea, coffee or chilled drinks. It doesn't need any side dish. Check out other pumpkin recipes.
