Introduction: Whole Wheat Flour Dishes (Gluten Removed)

Gluten is a substance present in cereal grains, especially wheat, that is responsible for the elastic texture of dough. In order to extract gluten from wheat flour, it should be formed into a dough and soaked in water. The gluten present in the wheat flour does not dissolve in water and sinks at the bottom. When filtered the gluten is strained out and removed. The remaining wheat flour (wet) can be used to make various recipes.

Note :

Although this processing often removes the gluten protein, some residual gluten may still remain in it. Wouldn't recommend for people with Gluten intolerance or sensitivity.

For people who aren't fighting gluten sensitivity, this can be a way to construct a new diet.

2) Soak the kneaded whole wheat flour dough in 2 cups of water for a minimum of 1 hour.

3) The dough would have become very soft after soaking for 1 hour. Mix the soaked dough and water together. This will make the gluten separate out and settle down.

4) Then filter the milk through a mesh/filter.

5) The gluten will be strained out. Discard the gluten and keep the whole wheat flour milk for the preparation of the dishes.
