1cup All purpose flour
1cup Whole wheat flour
1/2tsp Baking soda
1/4cup Melted Ghee
Flour for dusting
Take the all-purpose flour, wheat flour, baking soda, a teaspoon of ghee,sugar, salt in a bowl and mix everything. Add enough milk slowly and knead smooth and soft dough.
Once the dough is soft, drop the dough in a bowl, wrap it and let it sit for half an hour.
Now take dough from the bowl and knead again for a while, divide the dough as 6-7 balls.
Roll one ball to big chapatti, spread little ghee all over the rolled chapatti and sprinkle some flour on it.
Bring the end of the rolled chapathi towards the middle and bring the another edge towards the middle so that both edges overlap each other.
Again spread little ghee and sprinkle dry flour on folded chapatti.Fold it again to get the square shape dough.
Roll the dough again as a large square chappathi and and fold it thrice as much as we did earlier so that there are 9 layers.
Continue the same process with the remaining dough.
Cover the squared dough with wet towel and let them rest for 20 minutes.
Now dust with enough flour and roll the square dough as large square.
Heat the tawa or pan at medium heat and put rolled paratha on it. Drizzle some ghee and cook on both sides until the parathas gets well cooked.
Warqi paratha is ready, serve with spicy curries.
