Stone-ground khapli (emmer) wheat flour is a staple of the mountain diet. Emmer wheat is rich in fiber, protein, magnesium and other vitamins. It is a complete protein source when combined with legumes, which makes it an excellent addition to a vegetarian diet or for anyone looking for a plant-based high-protein food source. It is among the best wheat varieties to make rotis as well as bread or pasta at home.

The highlight of the flour that we are bringing to you is that the flour is milled in traditional water-powered stone flour mills, called gharat locally. Flour ground in these traditional mills are prized for retaining all the nutritious goodness of grains because these mills slowly grind the grain without heating them due to friction. The flour is gently ground over two or three days. (Watch a video of a traditional flour mill in action here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V8ALerv1UX8)

Emmer wheat flour is highly beneficial for diabetics and those that want wheat flour with low gluten. 

You can also mix 30-50% finger-millet flour and make multigrain rotis.

Flour cost reduces with larger quantity, so please ensure you choose right quantity before ordering.  

Emmer (khapli) wheat in the upper Tons Valley, Uttarakhand: 

Wheat is a winter crop in the upper Tons Valley. Wheat is sown in the month of November and harvested in summer in then month of June. Communities here sow heirloom seeds of emmer wheat which have been handed down through generations. Emmer wheat is among the oldest wheat varieties in the world.  Farmers who have wheat which is surplus to their annual food and seed purpose, sell to earn money. We are supporting these hard working farmers by finding a fair market for their wheat and adding value to it by processing it to flour in local traditional flour mills. We pay a fair price that compensates them for growing wheat in remote fields which don't even have access to a road. The harvest has to be brought on mules to the nearest road and then transported for milling and then packed in our processing center.

Our wheat is completely organic, grown using only natural compost and cow manure. No inorganic fertilizer or chemical pesticides are used. We are in the process of helping these farmers getting their produce certified organic very soon.

We are not a big e-commerce company focused on providing you instant gratification. We are trying to do things in our own way and are trying to work on things like technology, supply chain, customer service etc, from a very logistically challenged location. However, when it comes to products, we assure you nothing but the best.

Here are some important questions answered for you about how we ship our products:

How long does it take for me to get my products?

We have a fixed shipping schedule for orders. Monday is our designated shipping day. Every week, all orders made till Saturday 3 pm IST are processed for shipping on the following Monday.

Why does it take so long?

We process our orders in weekly batches. Our warehouse is in a very distant location. There is no way for us to ship small packets individually. We must process our orders in batches that can travel together in one vehicle to reduce the transportation cost from our warehouse to the shipping hub in Dehradun. We always send an email to confirm order dispatch on Saturday night.

How can I track my shipment?

Details will be emailed, please keep a track of your email.

How do you compensate in case of a lost or damaged shipment?
