    What are you making? I use bread flour for Indian flatbreads. I believe Atta flour is made from durum wheat so perhaps using pasta flour mixed with wholemeal might be closer. The main thing is high gluten content.

    Chapati. I ended up using AP and it was really good, albeit a bit softer than the restaurant versions I've had.
