Zucchini Flatbreads

Z for zucchini! I was waiting to use zucchini in my cake or bread since a long time. Finally when I got the opportunity to do so, I realised that we had too many cakes in the recent times. So cake went out and breads are usually a weekend affair to be enjoyed for 2 to 3 days. My SIL mentioned about zucchini parathas and it had been playing in my head for a while. So I made these but my way. It turned out very good and we finished them up as our breakfast.
So for the final day of the big marathon, try this dish..

Ingredients
1 cup zucchini grated
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tspn baking powder
1 tbsp chopped basil
1 tspn flax seeds coarsely ground
2 tbsp curd 
1 tbsp Olive oil
salt to taste
black pepper/ paprika
Method
1) In a large basin, mix all the ingredients and knead a soft but firm dough. Use little water at a time.
2) Cover and keep aside for 20 min
3) Knead the dough again and pinch out small balls
4) Roll out small puri sized flatbreads
5) Roast on a non stick griddle pressing all the time with a spatula. Use oil if you need to.
6) Remove when you have some dark spots on each side.
Serve warm with pesto sauce or red chilly paste

Zucchini is so easy to incorporate in the Indian diet. From thoran to parathas, it just fits in wherever we want it to! The bread looks nice and healthy. I had great fun going through all your recipes :-). Looking forward to the next mega marathon :)
