Is Chickpea Flour(Besan) healthier than Whole-wheat Flour?

Chickpea Flour does not contain gluten. So if you are someone who does not digest gluten well, this flour will work wonders for your gluten-free baking apart from other flours like almond flour and oat flour/oatmeal.

It definitely has a good nutrition profile than whole-wheat flour and is low on carbohydrates and this is good if you want to keep that diet profile which is low on carbohydrates.

  1. Mix the ingredients to form the dough.
  2. Roll it flat and thin enough so it does not break. The thinner the rolled dough, the crispier the crackers.
  3. Cut into rectangles and prick with a fork.
  4. Press Sesame Seeds and Nigella seeds (kalonji seeds) into all rectangles.

Course: Snack
Cuisine: American
Keyword: easy, gluten-free, quick
Servings: 2


  • Microwave/Oven Toaster Grill


  • 100 grams Split Chickpea Flour/ Gram Flour
  • 1 tablespoon Rice Flour
  • ½ teaspoon White Sesame Seeds
  • ¼ teaspoon Nigella Seeds/ Black Caraway Seeds/Kalonji Seeds
  • 1 teaspoon powdered sugar, sifted
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • water to form a soft and tight dough


  • Sift the flours and add all dry ingredients except seeds.
  • Start adding little water and knead together till it forms a soft but tight dough.
  • Preheat the oven for 10 minutes at 350°F/180°C
  • Dust your surface with rice flour or roll the dough between two sheets of cling wrap or parchment paper.
  • Roll the dough flat and thin but thick enough that it does not break. You will be able to judge the perfect thickness for your dough as you start rolling.
  • The thinner you roll the crispier the crackers will be and also they will take less time to bake.
  • Mark rectangles with a knife and prick holes with a fork in every rectangle so that the crackers do not puff up while baking.
  • Press healthy seeds of your choice. I have used Sesame Seeds and Nigella Seeds.
  • Bake for 10 minutes at 180°C till the edges start turning golden brown. If you have rolled thin crackers, keep an eye around the 8 minute mark.
  • Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.


These can be made with Chickpea Flour as well but I have used Split Chickpea Flour also known as Bengal Gram Flour to make these.
The dough should be tight and not loose and sticky.
If your dough becomes sticky add a tablespoon of Gram Flour and knead again.
You can also deep fry these crackers until golden brown.
