Maida flour is a finely-milled wheat flour often used in Indian cuisine, specifically breads such as naan and paratha. It is also commonly used in Central and Southeast Asian cuisines.
Indian chefs commonly refer to maida as "all-purpose flour" though it more closely resembles cake flour. In the United States pastry flour can be used as a substitute.
Very fine powder.
