Gluten-Free Flours In India

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello! I posted this in the international forum with no response so far, so I thought I'd try here as well.

We moved to Hyderabad, India, a few months ago. I'm finally starting to feel settled but I'm having trouble with the names of some of the flours and figuring out which ones are wheat flour and which aren't. I know that besan is a lentil flour and jowar is sorghum. I've also found corn flour and rice flour. I've heard that millet and buckwheat flours are available but I don't know the local names for them. Can anyone tell me? And are there any other flours I should be looking for? Thank you!

Ragi is the name for millet which is pretty common in your area. Ragi roti is really good. There are some other names for the different types and colors of millet. I forget buckwheats name but you can also get amaranthus flour.

Chana is the chick pea flour and i've seen moog dal flours too.

I'll be working in Bangalore and Kerala next week and can ask --

I'll be working with chefs in bangalore from Friday and then farmers in Kerala from the 27th so if you have any other questions about grains I'm sure I can find the answers although my speciality is fruit, many of the growers have both.

At many restaurants you can order ragi rotis which are really great
