BM #92 Day 23 - 

Warqi Paratha is a rich, flaky, layered paratha which tastes amazing with any spicy gravy. The layers are filled with clarified butter(ghee) and shallow fried in ghee as well.

It definitely fits into the Nawabi or Mughalai cuisines. Though it is traditionally prepared with All purpose flour, I have opted to make them with whole wheat flour.

In the process of relearning the English alphabet, we have almost come to the end. For today, it is W for Warqi Paratha.

Ingredients - 

*Wheat Flour 1 cup
Salt 1/4 tsp
Ajwain a pinch
Ghee 2-3 Tbsp (divided use)

* Traditionally this is made with All Purpose Flour (Maida). I have chosen to make with Whole Wheat Flour

Method Of Preparation -

In a mixing bowl, add the wheat flour, salt, ajwain and a teaspoon of ghee. Mix well.

Add warm water gradually to knead into a soft dough.

Cover and set aside for 20-30 minutes.

Make two portions of the dough.

a.Roll the one portion into an 8 inch disc. Brush ghee evenly on the rolled out disc. Fold one side of the disc to the middle, spread some ghee and then fold the other side to the end. It would resemble a rectangle. 

b. Pat some ghee all over and fold the rectangle to the middle and fold from the other end to cover the first fold.

Repeat steps a and b 3-4 times. The resultant paratha would have about 16-20 layers with ghee smeared in every layer.

Heat a griddle and carefully transfer the rolled out paratha onto it.

After a few bubbles appear, flip the paratha and generously smear ghee. Allow the under side to cook and then make sure ghee is smeared on both sides and is well cooked.

Remove and continue with the other portion of the dough.

Slice and Serve warm with a spicy accompaniment.
