Besan, ChickPea, Garbanzo Flour, Gram
Besan Flour is commonly used as a binding or thickening agent in many recipes and used widely in Indian and Middle Eastern cooking for pancakes, dumplings, sweetmeat and for pakora batter. Besan flour can also be substituted for wheat based flours to make gluten free recipes including bread, muffins and cakes.
When mixed with an equal proportion of water, it can be used as an egg replacer in vegan cooking.
Besan Flour is produced by dehusking and milling brown chick peas. There is no further refinement, so the nutritional value of the whole pea is retained. To retain freshness, Organic Besan Flour should ideally be refrigerated.
