Instructions :
To Cook Pumpkin using Instant Pot :
  1. Turn on instant pot and add a cup of water.
  2. In another pan place pumpkin pieces (PIP method).
  3. Place pan into the instant pot and close the lid with the vent on sealing position.
  4. Turn on steam mode and steam it for 9 minutes and followed by NPR.
To Make Pumpkin Puree :
  1. Peel the pumpkin and add it into the grinder,
    grind to make a puree, and add jaggery to the grinder again grind well.
  2. Remove the pumpkin and jaggery mixture and keep aside.
To Make Dough and Gharya / Puri :
  1. After the mixture cools down, to that add 2 cups of wheat flour, rice flour 2 tbsp, cardamom powder 1 tsp, nutmeg ¼ tsp mix well and knead to make the dough and
    coat the dough with the oil.
  2. Cover and let that rest for just about 15 minutes.
  3. After 15 minutes roll out big chapati and with the help of round cookie cutter or small bowl (वाटी) cut puris from big chapati, or you can divide the dough into equal portions and roll out puris big or small as desired.
  4. Deep fry all puris one by one in hot oil. After puri cools down, store them into an airtight container.
  5. When ready to serve, garnish with pumpkin seeds. Enjoy!!!
My Take :
  1. You can grate pumpkin and then can cook on medium flame with the jaggery until pumpkin cooks well or until all the water gets evaporated.
  2. If kept in an airtight container, then it can be edible for more than a week.
  3. You can substitute rice flour by adding semolina too.
  4. Fry Puris on medium flame only.

    I make puris a lot - including a sweet potato version, but not with added sweetener... this looks interesting, to make them sweeter. Will be giving it a try! YAM xx

      Yes addition of jaggery increases sweetness of this puris. Give it a try, I am sure you will like it.

  2. Lovely presentation. I grate it and make them. They are popular at our place too.

    1. Thank you SHERIE for stopping by.
      Grating pumpkin is also a good option. But while in hurry I choose to steam pumpkin and make a puree.
