    Hi Girls

    I have been living in US and Canada for a long time and have been using Sher Desi Durum Atta. The quality of this Atta is very good and it gives a very soft and yellowish tinge rotis and phulkas. The flour itself has a yellowish tinge and is 100% durum wheat.

    1. We would be relocating to India shortly and would like to know what would be a good equivalent brand there? Some of the attas which look promising when I searched online is as follows. Does anyone have any experience with them?

    • · Pillsbury – Punjabi Atta
    • · Pillsbury – Gold Atta
    • · Annapurna – Special MP Sharbati Atta
    • · Aashirward - MP Sharbati Atta
    • · Shree Bhog - MP Sharbati Atta
    • · Rajdhani - MP Sharbati Atta

    2. Which type of Atta closely resembles Durum Atta in colour and Roti texture – Punjabi Atta or Sharbati Atta? I know most of the Chakki Attas that are sold in India have a whitish colour with pinkish brownish undertone and that’s not what I am looking for. Also I don’t want a brand which has Maida added into it.

    3. We haven’t got our posting yet so we don’t know whether we would be in the Northern or Southern regions so please advise on the availability of the Atta you recommend in the region as well.

    Hope to hear your advice soon.

    Hey An123, I'm not sure of the Durum atta, I hope other Ilites will help. If you have already found any good quality atta, do share. :)

    hi op!
    though i don't know about the quality of DURUM atta,in india it is good to use either ANNAPOORNA OR ASHIRWAD atta.even pillspurry chakki fresh atta also good.you buy in small bags try these and find which one is according to your taste.
    always our choice is ashirwad-annapoorna then pillspurry depends upon the availability in our place.

    We prefer Aashirwaad Atta. one is with regular wheat and the other is with Sharbathi Wheat Atta. We have tried both and either way we have soft rotis.

    We tried Shakti bhog Atta also, but comparatively Aashirwaad is the better brand

    Ashirwad multi grain atta is too good. I use it and find it quite easy to digest.

    Well I would advice to make atta at home using atta maker, I have tried Annanpurna and Ashirvad, they stand no where close to the quality of home made atta. Get excellent quality "gehu" And make atta at home.
