For preparing the flour, the nuts are peeled, boiled and finally crushed into flour. It is actually a form of starch having a bright white colour. Singhara atta is used as a thickening agent while cooking. It is also used for chappatis, paranthas, sweets, vadas, pancakes and other dough based recipes. In the Asian culinary, it is used to make batter for deep-frying. Singhara flour is famously used on Hindu festival days, especially during the Navratras. Water chestnuts form a part of the phaldari diet followed during these fasts. Singhara atta puris, halwa, pakoras are some of the delicacies relished during the Navratri fasts. 

Singhara flour is gluten free with a glycaemic index of 60. Since the flour is a heavy appetizer, it aids during fasting, also providing essential nutrients. Water chestnuts are dense with potassium and fiber. It barely contains any sodium or fat though water chestnuts are high in carbohydrates.
