A Varqui Paratha is a brilliant concept used by Mughal chefs to prepare delicious flaky Parathas. Varqui Parathas are prepared with a mixture of wheat flour and plain flour. Individual chapattis are piled up and rolled into a Swiss roll before they are cut and rolled to form many layered Parathas.
- Mix the rice flour with ghee and make a smooth paste. Keep aside.
- Mix the plain flour, wheat flour and salt in a bowl.
- Add the milk and water if required and knead into a soft dough.
- Divide the dough into 6 equal portions and roll out each portion into a circle of 150 mm. (6") diameter.
- Place one circle on a flat, dry surface, spread the rice paste on one side and place another circle on the top.
- Place the remaining circles one on top of the other in the same way.
- Roll up like a Swiss roll and cut into 6 equal rings.
- Press each ring lightly and roll out again into a circle of 100 mm (4") diameter.
- Cook on a hot tava (griddle) with the help of a little ghee till both sides are golden brown.
- Serve hot.
