Maida is traditionally not famous in Tamil Nadu but these days Maida has become part of our cuisine mainly for a dish called Parotta - which is derived from North Indian version Paratha.

Maida is a wheat flour and this term is a South Indian term whose equivalent in North India is "Safed atta - lieterally White Flour".
