Gram flour is a flour made from ground chickpeas, a legume otherwise known as chana dal. It is also known as chickpea flour,garbanzo flour, or besan.

Although pronounced similarly in American English, gram flour is unrelated to graham flour.

How to make

1. Take pre-cooked chickpeas, rinse thoroughly and drain.

2. Spread evenly across an un-greased baking tray and cook on medium heat for 2–3 hours then turn off oven and leave overnight to cool.

3. Place into a mortar and pestle and grind to a fine consistency.
