The Super Wheat
Emmer wheat or Khapli wheat is a saviour for people looking for low gluten options to whole wheat. It has been around for thousands of years but is cultivated in selective parts of India. In winters, a delicious Kheer is made from Khapli which is a Maharashtrian dish and it attains a nutty flavor from the Khapli grain.
This naturally grown Khapli wheat along with being low in gluten has other curative properties for diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.
