How to make Warqi Paratha
Take one ball of the dough .
Grease your working surface and pat the ball with hands .
Now roll it into a thin roti , the shape doesn’t really matter , just roll it thin .
Using a brush spread a layer of ghee .
Using a knife or a pizza cutter cut very thin strips of the roti .
Once done take a flat broad knife , grease it and start collecting the strips , gently from the right side , going towards the left .
The strips will roll into a thick rope .
Gently lift this rope with greased hands and roll it around your hand tucking the end inside .
Now grease the surface once again and spread the ball into a disc of about 6-7”.
Do not roll as you might loose these layers .
Heat a griddle and place the paratha to cook.
Simmer the gas , let the paratha cook on one side , do not flip till the top of the paratha changes its color .
Flip the paratha , the first side would have cooked by now and we can see nice and crisp layer .
Smear ghee over the paratha and flip .
Cook both sides with ghee till the paratha is nice and crisp .
Once you remove the paratha take a kitchen towel and place the paratha over it .
Now gently crush the paratha with both your hands and you will be able to see hundreds of layers .
Enjoy the Warqi Paratha with your favourite daal or curry .
