Plain Flour Recipes, 2000 Maida Recipes Collection

A simple ingredient that is there in every kitchen across the world and is so taken for granted, but has the potential to create innumerable special dishes. Yes, it is plain flour which is called maida or all purpose flour. From delicacies like cakes and pastries to croquettes and ghugras, from everyday dishes like quick-fix dosas to exotic rotis, plain flour (maida) is so versatile that the jar is opened almost every day!

It has a mellow, bland flavour, which makes it suitable for many dishes. Dough made of plain flour (maida) is much softer and pliable compared to whole grain dough, which makes it ideal to make wraps and rolls that can burgeon with fillings! Given below are a sample of our Maida Recipe Collection
