Gharge / Maharashtrian Pumpkin Puri

Pumpkin - 1.5 cups, grated
Jaggery - 1 cup, grated
Whole Wheat Flour - 1/2 cup
Rawa / Semolina - 1/2 cup
Rice Flour - 1 tbsp
Cardamom Powder - 1/2 tsp
Salt - a pinch
Ghee - 1 tbsp
Oil for deep frying

Heat 1 tsp ghee in a pan. Mix the grated pumpkin and jaggery and cook till the pumpkin is fully cooked and the mixture combines together well. Remove from heat and add another tsp of ghee. Mix it with the cardamom powder, salt, whole wheat flour, rawa and rice flour and knead like a dough.

When the dough is completely cooled, make small balls of it. Apply a little ghee to your hand and pat the balls under plastic sheets to make little puris. Make a hole in the middle with your finger.

Heat oil for deep frying. Fry each puri till golden brown. Cool completely and store in a container.
