Reference for the incident of a Sahabi who didn't have food

Question

During a lecture, I heard this story: A Sahabi (radiyallahu’anhu) asked his wife for something to eat. She said that there was nothing in the home to eat. He went to the masjid, prayed 2 rakats, came back but still there was nothing

He realized that there was something wrong with his salat. So he went back to the masjid, prayed 2 more rakats returned home and asked his wife again. He found that the wheat grinder (chakki) he had in his house started operating by itself and was churning out flour that filled up every container in the house.

Is this a true story? What is its source and chain of narrators? What was the name of the Sahabi?

Are there any Hadith to support our Sunni view? I am aware of the scholars’ opinions on this issue, but just needed some Hadith.
