Elephant Atta, the nation’s favourite chapatti flour brand* has added the sunshine vitamin to their atta.

Consumers can rest assured that there is absolutely no compromise on taste either, their chapattis will be as delicious as always, just with added health benefits for the whole family.
The atta is suitable for those following a vegetarian or vegan diet and is packed in recyclable paper bags.
