*All purpose flour which is used as one of the ingredients in the preparation of Egg & Milk Pancake is Maida, used in Asian Countries. It is also of wheat but without outer brown layer. Maida is the flour of inner white grains. Thus maida differs from wheat flour. Maida and wheat flour (even other flours also) contain high portions of starches which are a subset of complex carbohydrates which are also called as polysaccharides. Maida is used in the preparation of breads such as paratha and naan in India and Pakistan. In India maida is also extracted from tapioca roots (tubers). This plant is native of Amazon, Brazil, Caribbean, Cuba, Haiti and some Pacific islands. Now its cultivation is almost world wide. In India Sago is being prepared from tapioca. The all purpose flour or maida is used in wide range of culinary preparations.
