Besan (Chickpea) Flour

So many names are used for this deliciously rich gluten-free flour! Protein-rich, and a low Glycemic Index (GI) food, besan flour is also known as chickpea or garbanzo or gram flour. It’s made from dried, ground chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans.


Cooking with Besan Flour

This flour is great for making batters, for thickening foods and as an egg-free binding ingredient for fritters and flat breads. As a dense, flavour-packed flour it’s generally used for baking in combination with lighter flours. However, the distinctive flavours of Indian pakoras and fritters, Italian panelle or farinata, and French socca all rely on the rich, nutty besan flour flavour.  For delicious gluten-free, chickpea recipes using besan flour, this recipe for Besan Vegetable Balls in Tomato Sauce is a cracker!
