Semolina/ sooji/ rava.(made from wheat)

A coarsely ground, golden-yellow flour obtained from durum wheat (hardest of all wheats). It is not whole wheat. It is unbleached. source http://www.lightnfluffy.com/backgro…

also Durum wheat is turned into semolina by being grinned and sifted. The semolina particles are 125-450 micron and have a bright and cornered view. For these reasons, the semolina made of durum wheat is bright yellow. After grinding, process of sifting is made and the impurities (bran, rasmol, sub semolina wheat) are distinguished.link http://www.nuh.com.tr/english/ureti…

Dear Raji,

Upma rava is made from the cream of wheat. Rice rava is also made but that is used in the making of Idlis by some people. If you want to know more about what we call rava/ sooji/ semolina, go to the site

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Semoli…

Semolina is coarsely ground grain, usually wheat, with particles mostly between 0.25 and 0.75 mm in diameter. The same milling grade is sometimes called farina, or grits if made from maize. It refers to two very different products: semolina for porridge is usually steel-cut soft common wheat whereas "durum semolina" used for pasta or gnocchi is coarsely ground from either durum wheat or other hard wheat, usually the latter because it costs less to grow.

Non-durum semolina porridge or farina has come to be known in the United States by the trade name Cream of Wheat. Semolina pudding is made by boiling or baking the grain with milk and sweeteners. The pudding can be flavoured with vanilla, served with jam, and eaten hot or cold. In Italy (Tuscany) spaghetti made with semolina are called pici. In most of India, it is known as sooji; in southern India, rava. In much of North Africa and the Middle-East, it is made into the staple couscous. In Turkey "irmik helvasi" (halva of semolina), made with semolina scorched with sugar, butter, milk and pine nut, is a very popular traditional dessert which is made especially after funeral ceremonies.

It can be used as an alternative to corn meal to 'flour' the underside of fresh pizza dough to prevent it from sticking to the peel.

In breadmaking, a small proportion of semolina added to the usual mix of flour produces a tasty crust. Not only upma, you can make many things out of sooji/rava, like rava idli, dosa , kichadi, etc All the best

Hi Raji,sooji/bombay rava is made from wheat grain.Maida,sooji are both made from the whole wheat grains.My father used to work in the Food Corporation of India, and he explained once how the sooji,maida are formed from the wheat.The grains are poured into a big tube and from there the different grinding machines give out maida,sooji and broken wheat from different tubes originating from the big tube.Hope this helps you.goodluck.

It is made of wheat. When I was small once we gave wheat in the mill and told them to grind it for sooji. Then we sieved through "Soopa" and seperated sooji and maida with it. Wow, it was quite an exciting experience for us to make our own sooji and maida in our home... :)
