So, what is chickpea flour?

Chickpea flour, also known as gram flour or besan, is a gluten-free and protein-rich ingredient that is made by grinding dried chickpeas into a fine powder. This versatile flour has a nutty, earthy flavor that is perfect for a variety of savory and sweet dishes. It is commonly used in Indian, Middle Eastern, and Mediterranean cuisines to make flatbreads, pancakes, and snacks such as falafel and pakoras. Chickpea flour is also an excellent egg substitute for vegan baking and a healthy alternative to wheat flour for those with gluten sensitivities. With its high fiber and protein content, chickpea flour is a nutritious addition to any recipe.
