It is finely milled to make superfine flour. It is a naturally dense flour making it a perfect ingredient for batter and binding recipes. It’s ideal to use as a thickening agent in soups and sauces and curries and also adds a lovely texture.
Why not try baking it into bread? Or use it as a crunchy coating to fried vegetables in batter? Perhaps even make delicious pizza dough with it? You could also make nutritious wraps and add some crisp vegetables for a flavoursome dish!
A cup of chickpea flour contains fewer calories and carbohydrates than a cup of wheat flour yet carries a much higher protein content.
Due to its high density, chickpea flour can be more filling than wheat flour. Studies have shown that flour from legumes like chickpeas and lentils, will satiate hunger naturally.
Chickpea flour has been used for over 7,500 years within many cultures so it is a tried and tested substitute to use for home baking. It’s one of the oldest cultivated legumes that had been discovered in the Middle East.
