nature fresh and shakti bhog are budget friendly ones. Generally most branded Atta don’t blend maida. Few do it only to make chapati’s softer and long lasting, which is not harmful for health

Thats the best way to buy cheapest and unadulterated Atta. However very cumbersome for bachelors living in PG

Most of the packed items are adulterated only.. so buying wheat and grinding it in mill only pure.. that’s the only cheap and best method.. bcoz every business has some profit and some adulteration/compromise in quality.

Most of the Atta variants which are costlier, are due to the source being a rare variety of Wheat from Madhya Pradesh. This wheat gives only superior physical properties (dough retains softness for longer periods) but nothing nutricious or healthy. This type of atta is almost 50 Rs a kg against the regular variant @ Rs. 30 or less a kg. Few atta variants are costlier because they try to create a healthier and nutricious blend with multiple grains like wheat, bajra, barley. Regular variant of each brand is generally same and equally healthy.

this time I actually went to the lengths of going to the chakki since dmart was stocked out of atta.
got jawar and raagi atta from chakki (after getting whole grains from dmart), the quality is honestly mind blowing and I have been using wheat ashirwaad atta all this while, but I’ll take some efforts and goto the chakki to get wheat done next time, the quality is a huge upgrade

yes. just add little portions of besan (gram flour), jowar and bajra flour and dry mix well before making the dough.

Atta is one thing i haven’t been able to replace with online / brands as the difference in quality is huge.I bought branded atta online couple of times and both times it got wasted as nobody wanted to eat it.In my place ,almost everyone uses chakki atta as it is easily available at all kirana stores and they source it from local chkkis so you dont have to go to chakki itself.

For your query Shakti Bhog Atta is best out of the given options. Patanjali Atta is also pretty good.

Bro, in my area (Rajasthan/Punjab) wheat grains cost hardly 20-25 Rs/kg for good quality. Although there is no upper limit but you get decent quality. So if one could buy them and get them milled then that will be cheapest and purest option.

These branded merchants take huge margin and several costs like transportation and multiple intermediate dealer margins make them this costly.

Farmers hardly get 1800-2000 rs/100 kg in my area for their wheat grains crops.

It is because it is not pure or mixed with other cheaper options.

Which location? How much did grains from dmart cost and is it their own brand?

genuinely asking: how can ANY whiteflour (added for whatever reason) added in whatever quantity be okay or same as wholewheat flour¡¿
[miller’s bran/ चोकर is what gives wholewheat flour its character, texture and health benefits; right?]

sorry, i wouldn’t know what ‘student like me’ means.
(it could mean; financially not independent, not skilled to identify certain things or the ‘artifical’ shortage of time)
but even if not a student myself;
one thing is a given… price and performance/ quality have a direct relationship.
So the☞ cheap and best ➕ saving and health☜ is a near unachievable target😔.

no family elders or any elders to guide you?

who bakes the flat breads/ chapatti/ phulka?
the fluffiness or otherwise of the rotis also depends on the original moisture content and variety plus ‘grade’ of the wheat plus how the dough is made, allowed to sit before being baked and so on.

health won’t get affected much even if a cheaper variety is taken.
But freshness and cleanliness might be better if procurement/ cleaning of wheat is done by oneself and them milled it in-house (small simple basic mill/ atta chakki hardly takes up 2 square feet space to keep and is under 3 feet tall)
otherwise, one can get the wheat milled at a chakki.
Retailers like bigbazaar do the millibg for free if the wheat is bought from them.
But as a student, you might have to rely on elders or some nice neighbours or landlords to help decide how fine or medium the flour should be.
.
Also, variety of the wheat (say: lokwaan) is different than the grade within the variety.
.
If you go for branded/ ready packed flour…
then you need to drop the ☞cheap and best ➕ saving and health☜ part from the query.
.
and what kind of student are you😛 that a desi beand Aashirwaad (ITC is it?) is costly for you but Pilsbury is not😛?

do cut down on vices (if any.. cigarette, gutkha, alcohol, womanising/manising) or entertsinment/shopping spends and consider using the savings to buy Aashirwaad.

if aware, please also local name/variety or technical grade/code of the product http://www.apeda.gov.in/apedawebsite/SubHead_Products/Wheat.htm

otherwise comparison (analysis) is not just difficult, but futile😟😔.

P.S.: the rate you are qupting, is from a “known shopkeeper” retail rate, wholesaler to retailer rate, direct ‘jugaad’ from farmer but per quintal rate or really retail from any Dmart or value mart store’s rate (even if tsking just one kilogram)?

He have anaj mandi in jaipur we procure directly from their and if you purchase from farmer then it is more cheaper and don,t go in so technical things quality and grade as research goes on result come then another research says past result were false about the grade and quality you should only remember that it is fresh and no insects are in it and you can also consider size as in packed one they only mention procured directly from farmer or from up/rajasthan no one know what they put .
