Organic Besan Flour
Organic Besan flour is made from ground chickpeas (usually roasted but sometimes raw) and is a popular ingredient in Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi cuisine. Being gluten free it makes a delicious alternative to plain flours and can be used to make delicious savoury pancakes or as a tasty soup thickener or binding agent for fritters and meatballs. Besan flour is high in fibre and protein compared to grain flours making it more filling as well as nutritious.
