  • 3 kgs Punjab wheat
  • 2 kgs samba wheat


  • I always use a combination of punjab wheat and sambar wheat while grinding as it gives soft chapathi / phulka. The ratio I am using is 3 kgs punjab wheat with 2 kgs samba wheat.
  • Left side yellow bowl : Samba Wheat - Right Side Purple Bowl : Punjab Wheat
  • Just showing the sample fo both for easy identification.
  • Now mix 3 kgs punjab wheat with 2 kgs samba wheat. Remove any speck or dirt and check if any and remove it. Rinse it well.
  • Sun dry for a day or 2 until completely dry and crisp.
  • It took 1 complete day for me to dry. Now all ready to go for grinding in mill.
  • While giving for grinding make sure to tell them the flour needs to be very fine.
  • After grinding open and keep for sometime as it will be very hot. If closed and kept moisture may develop due to the heat and will wet the flour.
  • My flour is very fine so I did not sieve it. If it is coarse then you may need to sieve it once before storing.
  • Store in a clean dry airtight container to be stored in kitchen. I usually keep in a jar for regular use and store the bulk in the big thooku itself (the steel container shown).
  • Homemade Wheat Flour | Atta | Chapati Flour is ready!



  • Sieving is optional. But if your flour is coarse then sieve once atleast and store.
  • You can even use just punjab wheat.But when samba is added it gives more softer phulka/chapati.
  • You can get whole wheat in any supermarket, its easily available.
  • This measure had been passed on to me from amma and I am following it for the past 8 years.
