Besan is also a prominent ingredient in Indian street cuisine and sweets such as halwa, laddoo, and barfi, among others. Aside from cooking, it is considered to be an effective cure for skin problems. It's commonly used in face packs to remove skin darkening and promote a healthy, blemish-free complexion, and it's also effective as a body and facial scrub for exfoliation. Besan is full of benefits and nutritious values. Besan is gluten-free, so it's a perfect choice for gluten-intolerant people. Vitamin A and K, calcium, magnesium, potassium, zinc, iron, phosphorus, manganese, selenium, and copper are among the vital components found in it. It's an excellent source of protein for vegetarians and a good substitute for eggs.

Gatte Ki Sabzi

Gatte ki sabzi is a traditional Rajasthani curry dish made with chickpea flour (gram flour) dumplings and a spicy yoghurt sauce. The dry climate influenced the development of most Rajasthani food. This recipe is unique in that it does not require any fresh veggies. This dish is made with steamed and lightly fried gram flour dumplings with a tangy tomato, buttermilk, and spice gravy. It's served best with rice and rotis (Indian flatbread). It's simple to prepare and goes well with roti and plain rice.
