1.Boil, steam or microwave pumpkin for 10 minutes or until just tender; drain. Blend or process pumpkin with the water until smooth; push pumpkin puree through a medium sieve into a bowl. You will need 1½ cups puree.
2.Sift flours and salt into a medium bowl; stir in seeds. Make a well in the centre; stir in oil and enough of the pumpkin puree to form a soft dough. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap; stand for 10 minutes.
3.Divide dough into six portions; roll out each portion on a lightly floured surface into a 26cm round. Preheat a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add one wrap to the pan; cook on one side for 30 seconds or until starting to brown. Turn, cook for a further 30 seconds. Transfer wrap to a clean tea towel; cover to keep soft.
4.Repeat with the remaining wraps, stacking wraps and covering as they cook to keep soft. Use wraps warm or cooled. Fill wraps with a selection of meat and salad and roll up, or serve warm with meat or vegetable curries.
