Naturally Grown
The Monks Bouffe Khapli wheat is a heirloom variety of khapli grown in the Parbhani region of western Maharashtra. It is exclusively grown by our farmer friends using natural/organic farming practices.

Reviving this ancient variety
It is speculated that Khapli wheat came to Northern India (Kashmir) from the Persia & Afghanistan region of the Middle-east. While it reached Southern India by the sea route from NoorthEastern Africa. Khapli has been grown on our land for over 10,000 years though the revival of this nutritious variety has just begun once again. A large number of farmers especially in Maharashtra have now started growing this ancient variety.

Easy to Digest
Moving away from the common belief that wheat is difficult to digest, the low gluten content and the low glycemic index make khapli comparatively easy on the stomach & easier to digest. Many doctors, nutritionists and dieticians have now started recommending Khapli wheat for daily use when it comes to flat breads like rotis, chapattis or parathas.

Stone Ground & Hand 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.

Traditional Processing of Khapli Wheat
Step 1: The Spikenet when hard is harvested and soaked in water.
Step 2: It is then dried (number of days depends on the region)
Step 3: Fiercely thrashed to free the seeds.
Step 4: The seeds are once again soaked and dried.
Step 5: The seeds are then thrashed again to get the long thin edible meal of Khapli

Softest & healthiest chapatis ever

Though priced little high, yet it does't bother , so long as the quality is delivered. The chapatis are very soft and tasty. Good amount of fibre for health. Best buy foy health, hygiene & taste conscious. Go for 5 kg instead of 1 kg pack, as former is cheaper.
