Stone Ground & Seived

Khapli wheat kernals are stone-ground to keep its nutrition value intact. Due to less generation of heat during stone-grinding, the nutrition value and the flavour of the flour remains intact.


Stone ground milling usually happens at a macimum speed of 40RPM.


Once ground, we manually sieve the flour to get a fine end product which is perfect for soft chapatis.

Traditional Processing of Khapli Wheat 

Khapli wheat is a Hulled Wheat, which means that two seeds sit inside an impenetrable fortress of a tightly bound chaff called Spikelet. This is what makes it a lengthier process to get the edible form of the khapli wheat, one of the reasons it got sidelined in the world which was moving towards productivity over everything else.
