Wondering is chickpea gluten free? Also, are you looking for a Diwali gift for a loved one?

Yes, chickpea is gluten free and makes healthy sweets - some of the tastiest delicacies you will ever make.

The iron-rich chickpea flour gives you a good amount of fiber benefits as well. So you can make healthy sweets for Diwali with this gluten free flour.



I have been trying sweets and savories that can be enjoyed guilt free. But I really wanted to try the authentic besan burfi recipe. Since it is Diwali, I have given myself a day's rest from healthy recipes.

Thanks to my dearest friend Anna, I could make this scrumptious delicacy that is simply aromatic and flavorful for Diwali.

Let's see how our moms and grandmothers used to make besan burfi in those days:

Here is my baked version with chickpea gluten free flour. It is absolutely delish and in no way less than the present stuff.

You have got to try this healthy sweet with gluten free chickpea flour to believe me.

  9. Meanwhile, take water in a pan and add sugar to it. Keep it for boiling. If you want to add green cardamom, include it now.

  11. Quickly add this to the besan mixture and stir very well.
  12. Keep stirring until the mixture forms like dough and collects in the center of the pan.
  13. Also, do not forget to keep a greased plate aside or aluminum foil.
