About

Organic Besan Flour is a protein-rich, naturally free from gluten flour, stone milled from ground chickpeas. Besan flour is also known as chickpea flour and gram flour in recipes. Organic Besan Flour is pale yellow in colour with a strong nutty flavour, making it popular in savoury dishes and Indian cooking.

Served Best

Organic 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. Organic Besan flour can also be substituted for wheat-based flours in recipes including bread, muffins and cakes.

Benefits
