Made from chickpease, Besan flour (Bengal Gram) is a staple kitchen ingredient and has gained popularity as a gluten-free alternative to wheat flour. Due to its dense, sticky texture, it works well as a thickening agent in sauces, soups, and batters for everything from baking to frying.
Besan flour is extremely versatile! It is a great gluten-free baking flour and works well in biscuits or brownies. If the recipe calls for a lighter crumb, combine it with any other flour. Instead of cream or cornflour, you can use besan as a thickening agent in soups, sauces, and curries. It is also an egg replacer/binding agent as it is very absorbent (approximately 1 egg = ¼ cup chickpea flour + ¼ cup water).
Transfer to an airtight container, and store in a cool & dry place.
