lauki paratha recipe with step by step photos – nutritious whole wheat flat breads made with lauki or bottle gourd.

lauki happens to be one of those veggies that i often use in the summers. lauki is also called as bottle gourd, opo squash and long melon in english. if lauki is your favorite veggie, then you can have a look at these lauki recipes:

paratha and rotis are made almost every working day at home (except weekends). thus i make different varieties or types of paratha. the lauki paratha is again a family recipe and one which we make with lauki on occasions. there is another method of making these parathas with the lauki mixture stuffed in them. this method is slightly tricky as the parathas may break while stuffing with the lauki mixture.

these lauki parathas can also be packed as tiffin box snack or lunch. the taste of lauki is not felt in the parathas. so good for kids who do not like to eat healthy veggies like lauki.

lauki parathas can be served hot or warm with fresh curd/yogurt (plain or sweetened with some sugar) or a raita. i served with carrot raita. you can also serve with a mango pickle or lime pickle.
