Roasted Semolina With Bran Flakes

Semolina is the coarse wheat middlings of wheat. This coupled with bran flakes makes the perfect ingredients for a wholesome meal for any season.  FoodThink Semolina with Bran Flakes is beautifully roasted until it gets a rich aroma and golden brown texture. Make nutritious upmas, halwas, uttapams, dhokla or whatever your tummy desires.

Modern milling of wheat into flour is a process that employs grooved steel rollers. The rollers are adjusted so that the space between them is slightly narrower than the width of the wheat kernels. As the wheat is fed into the mill, the rollers flake off the bran and germ while the starch (or endosperm) is cracked into coarse pieces in the process. Through sifting, these endosperm particles, the semolina, are separated from the bran. The semolina is then ground into flour. This greatly simplifies the process of separating the endosperm from the bran and germ, as well as making it possible to separate the endosperm into different grades because the inner part of the endosperm tends to break down into smaller pieces than the outer part. Different grades of flour can thus be produced.
