Dried water chestnut flour, or singodaaata, is typically consumed during Navratri. The flour is used as a thickening ingredient and is a dazzling white colour. A tasty singadasabjiis also prepared with it. It is used for making parathas, rotis, and other dough-based dishes. In India's northern region, it is frequently used for fasting. A glycemic index describes it as gluten-free. During fasting periods, particularly during Navratra, people usually eat poori and halwa made of this aata. It is rich in fibre and has antioxidant effects.
