Besan (Chickpea Flour) Pastry

Besan (Chickpea Flour) Pastry created by artbyeh

This is such a healthy pastry, and has a nutty savoury taste. I use it for all kinds of vegetarian pies and tarts, either as the shell, or as the pastry top/lid.

ingredients

directions

  • Whizz the flour and salt together in a food processor.
  • With the motor running, add the olive oil and process until the mixture resembles bread crumbs.
  • Add just enough water to form a malleable, slightly sticky dough.
  • Roll out the pastry as needed on a floured board, or between two pieces of cling wrap.
  • To bake a bind (before adding a filling): prick all over the pastry with a fork, cover the pastry with a layer of foil and place either pastry weights or some dry beans or rice on the foil. Bake at 180C for 15 minutes, remove from oven, take off the foil and leave to cool, before proceeding with the filling of your choice.

    Hi I made the recipe with rice bran oil but all else was exactly the same and the pie base cracked? Any tips appreciated!

    Are there any side effects using chickpea flour.? Am wanting to lower the carbs in a healthier way. Tried lupin flour - my husband found he was allergic to it and came out in a rash. Is is suitable for sweet tarts or pies also? Thx so much

    maybe a little less water. Other than that the pastry is very malleable and did not stick. Tastes great and very healthy,
