Used in sweets, samosas or batter for bhajis. Thickens and fortifies sauces and used, mixed with other flour(s) to enrich chapatti mix. When made into a paste with water or yogurt, it is used popularly as a face cleanser in the Indian subcontinent. Also it is commonly used as a replacement for egg in vegetarian cooking. Its unique texture and flavor instantly adds complexity to any baked good. Made from dried and ground chickpeas, chickpea flour is high in protein and naturally gluten-free, making it surprisingly sturdy when it comes to baking.
