Used to be really nice. Has the recipe changed ?
We have bought this many times in the past and it has been excellent for bread making, scones and chapattis. Great flavour and texture. But the last two bags ( 10kg size ) have been awful. Chapatties are really firm. Flavour used in bread or chapatties tastes stale and "cardboardy". Binned last packet and replace with another. Just started using this which turns out just as bad. Maybe Tesco have changed the recipe or this is just an unlucky bad batch. In any case, we're not buying any more. May try it again in the future if it gets good reviews.
Good for chapati no adulteration
Very good and soft chapati made
An excellent, strong wholemeal bread flour milled finer than normal wholemeal flour.
Excellent all round flour
Excellent flour, I have been making bread with it and it makes a very nice light wholemeal loaf. I bought it because of the lack of bread flour but will be choosing this in the future.
This flour used to be of good quality but the qual
This flour used to be of good quality but the quality has gone incredibly down that the chapattis are hard. The chapattis used to be soft and fluffy before
Excellent Flour !
This is excellent all round flour. I now use it for most of my baking. It makes excellent scones - I use yoghurt instead of milk to mix and they are light and fluffy and keep for a couple of days at least. Also it is incredibly good value. I decant it into smaller airtight containers when it arrives. It's a winner !
I decided to have a go at making chapatis and wrap
I decided to have a go at making chapatis and wraps. They are so easy to make. I bought a heavy based crepe pan to cook them on and they turned out really good. I wrapped them in a clean tea towel as I made them and they were soft, warm and delicious. I have also used the flour for apple crumble topping and it worked really well.
Not a nice flour
Unfortunately, this flour caused me to be constipated. Not normal for wheat flour.
Fantastic value and excellent quality bread flour.
Excellent quality - I used this for making flatbreads (chapatti) and for making loaves of wholemeal bread. Incredibly good value. I empty the sack into smaller airtight containers as I find the large sack unwieldy but if you bake bread this is wonderful and creates delicious fluffy bread with much more flavour than white flour - just use it instead of strong white flour or mix it hald and half with white bread flour.
Economical and functional
Since we can no longer guarantee to order flour, I ordered this as a "backstop". I was not sure what to expect, but I thought it would be useful if only for dumplings in a stew. It turn out to be a reasonable wholemeal flour. So far I have successfully made an 800g loaf and a steak pie with a good crust. The texture of the loaf was firmer than store-bought bread, but the taste was excellent. I would buy it again, but as it comes in a 10Kg sack, that will not be soon.
