Cooking tips - Mix whole Wheat flour with all-purpose flour to get a palatable dish or increase the water content of dough, knead longer and allow a longer raising time. With oil content in the bran, this flour is more susceptible to spoilage and thus store always in air tight container in cool and dry place. One can prepare breads like Roti, Chapati, Paratha, Naan, Puri, etc. It can be replaced with white flour (Maida) that is used in other baking items like cake, muffins, cookies, pastries, pizza bases, pastas, etc.
