There is a Russian word мука́ (which means flour in English)

What antonym exists for this word?

    Leaving Russian aside, what, conceptually, would be an antonym to "flour"? Wheat? Gravel? Soot?

Not all nouns have antonyms.

Only nouns that express a quality, or an object/subject with a specific quality, can have antonyms, e.g. молодость - старость, скупердяй - транжира. The word "мука" refers to a specific object, not a quality, so it has no antonyms.

  • Is it транжир or транжира? My dictionary has both...

In case you meant the word that's spelled the same, but stressed on the first syllable, it means "suffering" and its antonym would be "удовольствие" (pleasure).
