Maida is milled from the endosperm just like wheat and then finely refined and bleached to get its smooth and white texture. Maida is rightly named as all-purpose flour due to its universal cooking properties.
In an Indian household, Maida can be used in making parathas, shawarmas, puris and other lip-smacking dishes. Maida can also be used to make momos, bread, and cakes. Maida can be used to make quick recipes and increase the taste factor in the dishes.
