Flour Power: We Made Yum Pasta & Roti With Wheat From This Family Farm

What Makes It Awesome

The flour power is strong with Three One Farms, a generational family farm near Abohar, Punjab. A chat with Anushka Neyol of Three One Farms revealed that they are touted to be one of the first few farms in India that grows coloured wheat developed by the National Agricultural Biotechnology Institute, Mohali. And their signature black wheat along with baking wheat flour, durum wheat flour, whole wheat flour, and organic wheat flour is what we got to try when they sent us samples. While we use store-bought whole wheat flour at home to make rotispuris, and chapathis, the puris we made with whole wheat had us making the decision to switch to Three One Farms whole wheat flour. 

The dough was easy to knead, and what this writer's mum loved the most was the puris didn't soak up too much oil. And they puffed up well, like mini bhatures. We used the baking wheat flour to make a batch of brioche buns and while we are still a noob at baking, the results were quite satisfactory owing to the fact that it's got high gluten content. The black wheat flour is our favourite of the lot for its very robust, earthy flavours. We've been making pasta with this and the finely ground durum wheat pasta. Speaking of pasta, we even tried a black wheat conchiglie by Casarecce that uses Three One Farms' black wheat. Oh, and did we tell you the brand is diabetic-friendly too? 


You can order the wheat varieties, as well as other farm produce such as jaggery (powder and blocks),  black rice grains, unrefined mustard oil, mustard seeds, and barley flour and seeds.
