For The Filling:
Peel, deseed and cube the pumpkin.
Grind it to a fine paste.
IN a saucepan, mix together ground pumpkin, sugar and ghee.
Cook on medium flame until it becomes thick.
Now add rice flour, corn flour and vanilla and mix well.
Cook on medium flame until it comes together as a sticky thick dough.
Remove from flame, transfer to a bowl or a pan, cover with cling film and refrigerate for an hour until set.
For The Outer Dough:
Mix flour, salt and ghee.
Add enough water to make a soft and smooth dough.
Cover and set aside for 15 minutes.
Knead the dough until it is smooth and elastic.
Cover and set aside.
For The Laminating Dough:
Mix together maida and salt.
Add ghee and mix to form a crumbly dough. You should be able to shape it into a smooth ball. If needed add a little more ghee.
Laminating The Dough:
Preheat oven to 180°C.
Now take the outer dough and divide it into eight equal portions.
Take the laminating dough and again divide it into eight equal portions.
Roll the outer dough into a circle, place the laminating dough in the centre and gather the edges to cover it.
Make it into a smooth ball and set aside.
Repeat it with the remaining portions.
Now roll out the ball into a oval and roll it into a tight log.
Turn it 90° and roll it again into a thinner oval.
Roll it again tightly into a log.
With the seam side facing up make a depression with your finger in the middle and fold the dough into half.
Now with the folded side facing down press to form a disc.
Filling and Shaping The Bread:
Now remove the filling from the fridge and divide it into eight equal portions.
Shape each portion into a ball.
Take a laminated disc, roll it slightly, place the filling inside and bring the edges together to make an enclosed ball.
Place the seam side down and roll it into a thick disc.
Place it on a greased baking tray.
Once all the discs are shaped, with a sharp knife make three slits on the discs, going all the way through to the bottom.
Brush the top of the bread with milk and sprinkle sesame seeds.
Bake in the preheated oven for 20 - 25 minutes or until the top is golden.
Remove from oven and serve it hot or at room temperature.
