 WARQUI PARATHA

 The Warqui Paratha or the ‘layered‘ paratha is a gourmet’s delight. Cooked with a lot of ghee, it can be stored for a longer duration. It is a popular bread for picnics and journeys, as it tastes good even when cold and goes very well with kababs; it is a standard breakfast fare too.
