Healthy eating habits are the key to good health. Most people are conscious of their health even if they don’t live a healthy lifestyle. Let’s begin by eating right to help maintain good health. Oily and butter-dripping-rich foods are often forgotten when it comes to staying healthy. Natural sweetened or sugar-free dishes are now replacing refined white sugar. We also have snacks low in cholesterol, which can replace deep-fried foods. If this is true, why not look for healthy options for parties and celebrations with a multigrain wheat cake?

We are trying to replace Maida in many dishes today with whole wheat flour, which is more nutritious. The Multi-Grain Atta is a way to make whole wheat flour more nutritious. This blends the benefits of different grains to provide a more nutritious and healthy diet.

Instead of buying multigrain flour at the market, make it yourself!

Create your Multigrain Atta

The following ingredients are required to make 10kgs of multigrain flour:

  • Whole Wheat – 7 Kgs
  • Finger Millet Ragi – 500gms
  • Bajra or Pearl Millet – 400gms
  • Sorghum, or Jowar – 400 gms
  • Bengal Gram or Channa Dal. Whole Channa is also possible – 400gms
  • Soya Beans 400 gms
  • 400gms Maize/Corn
  • Barley – 200gms
  • Oats – 300 grams

Making Multigrain Flour

First, wash all ingredients thoroughly to get rid of any dust particles. Except for whole wheat grains and oats, dry roast the ingredients until they have a pleasant aroma. Let it cool on the stove. Mix all ingredients and then grind it in a flour mill. Let the flour cool on a tray or surface. Now your multigrain flour can be used. It should be stored in an airtight container.

Keep flour out of moisture by storing it in an airtight container

You can adjust the proportions to suit your needs. This flour can be substituted for maida in cakes, cookies, bread, and puris.

This is a simple recipe for chocolate cake that can be made with multigrain flour in place of maida.
