Chickpea Flour/Garbanzo Flour/Besan Flour (pronounced Basin) is the nectar of the Gods :-) It is AMAZING and you can do so much with it. We discovered if a few months ago when we were testing out pizza dough recipes. Well Rob has been experimenting this morning & made Onion Rings this morning. This is what it is called 'officially' http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bhajji
So see you can be grain/sugar free and still enjoy yummy foods! Rob is the MASTER of making our meals delic, and I just LOVE that about him.
The recipe is really simply
Besan (chickpea flour)
Seasonings (he used garlic/onion, cumin)
you can also add Baking Powder to make it a little fluffier. (We use our baking powder substitute).
He has also made turnips bhaji, jicama bhaji
Here's an indian recipe for it:
