Homemade Multigrain Atta Recipe - Ingredients

Preparation Time : 1 day | Processing Time : 10 mins | Makes : 2.5 kgs
Recipe Category: Homemade Flour | Recipe Cuisine: Indian

Whole Wheat(Punjab Gothumai) - 2 kg
Oats - 100 gms
Maize - 100 gms
Ragi - 50 gms
Chana Dal - 100 gms
Soya Bean - 50 gms
Note : If you want cup measures you can have a ratio of 2.5 cups(wheat) : 1 cup(multigrains)
We usually grind punjab whole wheat and samba wheat together in the ratio 2:1 for normal chapathi flour.

Method:

  1. Wash all the grains well and let it dry in sunshade for at least for a day till it is completely dry. Then give it for grinding, I gave it to the mill.

My Notes:

  • Dry the multigrains completely before giving it to grind.
  • Dont add more ragi and soya than the quantity mentioned else it will give a raw taste and ragi will change the color too.
  • You can even roast the multigrains(except whole wheat) till a nice aroma rises. Then combine with wheat and give to grind though I havent tried it personally.
  • You can even add barley and other grains as per your preference.

  9. Wow Sharmi,

    Imagine making your own multi grain atta. You know that you are selecting the best ingredients and not having anything other that whats nutritious. I think its really a great idea! In those days all mothers used to make their own atta, but now with so many easy products crowding the market, no one has the time. Many wheat flours have the label "Durum Wheat" but definitely has a lot of maida and other things mixed in! Lovely composition!

  20. You can try the same without channa dal and maize especially those who are conscious of weight. Don't sieve the flour. The rotis still comes out very soft and tasty.
