So, I was shopping for some things for al-Hafla this weekend, and on a whim picked up a bag of this durum wheat flour to bake some more bread with it for my pasticcios.
I used it with regular unbleached flour, and I have to say, it made some pretty golden rustic loaves. Not very lofty, but the crumb and texture are tender.
I understand that this flour is intended for chapattis, but it made a nice yeast bread. I used a pan full of water to steam-bake the loaves.
Verdict: I'd recommend it; if you have an Indian grocery near you and like to bake semolina bread, it's a finer grind than the Red Mill stuff I can normally find in the supermarkets.
