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.

The taste is nothing short of spectacular. It is filling and the aroma of the paratha just lingers in your mouth. There is no need to have a subzi with this.
