Durum atta flour

Nyleve | Nov 30, 2010 02:56 PM

So I've always wondered about this flour. I've seen big bags of it for sale but it doesn't make sense to buy a huge bag of something I may not have much use for. But today I was able to scoop a few cups of the stuff out of a bag that was at the soup kitchen where I volunteer and bring it home to try. I was thinking because it's durum semolina it might be good for pasta. But maybe not. It's NOT whole wheat - but the flour is somewhat granular and a yellowish colour.

Anyone have any experience with this flour? I know it's used for chapattis and other Indian breads - but other than that does it have a use?
