sounds fun

We have tried almost every atta available in this market and can assure Pillsbury is by far the best. This is absolute rubbish. Its cheap but then cheap isnt best.

Proper bargain. Love chapattis. Can't make them for love nor money though.

Can you make the pilsbury dough boy? he was so cute

I agree pillsbury is the best one. The chapattis are much softer and dough stands for long time.
The cheapest pillisbury I bought for from asda few weeks back where 5kg's was for £5.

So hot deal for the price.

My mother cooks nice sexy food and they hate this atta with a passion. Its so rubberryyyy.

Are you a chef?

try rank hovis wholemeal atta 16kg for £10. once you've had the brown you'l never go back to the crappy, cheap, white stuff.

Rank! doesn't sound too tasty to me

rank hovis is no where near a decent wholemeal atta... but thats a whole new conversation..

well they sold 25 kg elephant atta for £7 in tesco spring field birmingham

No I am not a chef.

great deal, heated, thanks

great for paratas!

last batch I bought was so tough you could use it to re-sole army boots....anyone else used it to restick peeling wallpaper it's really good!!
Good price poor product.

wouldn't advise using flour paste for wallpapering, need a fungicide and the Solvite stuff is cheap enough....wouldn't advise making chapatis with the Solvite either

strong wife!

Voted hot. Good price and good quantity. Elephant Atta is ok, not as good as champion flour but its the best of the rest for me personally. Our chapatis turn out ok and taste reasonably good.

@Cath1510 It takes a lot of practice for sure and yeah when consumed in large quantities it can be fattening but my god they taste good. Reply back and I'll post some instructions.

Is this wholemeal? Is Pilsbury available in wholemeal?

Is your wife a body builder? Thats some weight to lift in one go!

Ok if your into making chapatti's I suppose..Me I got better things to do!

Some sad people frequent this site..:p

I can't get my chappatis to puff up fully. I can get them nice and soft, and they taste good but I want to see them turn into footballs now and again.

These'll pile the pounds too!

Chappies, that is.

Depends on how you prepare the dough me thinks. The pans have to be at the right temp as well Most of ours do pretty well and puff most of the time. Also make sure your not making them too thin or being harsh on them as any holes will cause the pressure to drop in the "football" and hence they won't puff.

yoou have to make these chappatis with pace otherwise they go tough and rubbery.
eating plain white flour chappatis just is not right! lol

Yep Wholemeal atta all the way!

I love this atta!! Especially the white flour one. The dough has a nice consistency and the chappatti's are so lovely and fresh, you dont even need to butter them. Warning though - where i normally eat two chappatti's i eat 3 of these!

Experimented loads with thickness and think I've got it about right. If they're on too long then they get tough. I've whittled it down to one pan that is pretty good. I even used a huge cast iron bakestone at my mum's but that didn't work so well either. I'll get there.

I went looking for Pilsbury today but the guy in the shop said Elephant is the best seller by far from his shop. I could just go next door as they do 3 roti or 3 plain naan for a quid, and kneading dough is something I can't stand.

Not sure how to make Chappaties, we tend to check on Manjula's useful web site, even though we've never made it ourselves. Someone might find it helpful

I find the best way is to cook on the pan until nearly ready then take off pan and keep turning it on the naked flame (no pan) without leaving on too long (obviously will burn!). This way it puffs up really nice but beware of escaping steam!
Great Deal but none in my local:(

lol I find that if you use a pancake pan its ok. We don't use oil as a way to cut down on the unhealthy side of roti. True kneading dough can be a pain. Mind you be careful when buying from these guys as you don't know how the food is prepared and might be more unhealthy than it would be if you made yourself. It took my mother 10 years to perfect so be persistent with this and you shall be rewarded!
