Chickpea Flour (Besan) Poore

“These are best made fresh and served hot. The batter can be made in advance and refrigerated. However, if they are made ahead of time, then reheat in a stack of four, properly wrapped, in the microwave oven (1 to 2 minutes) or the conventional oven (10 minutes at 375 degrees F). Healthy Alternative: Make on a heavy skillet, using oil spray or very little oil. Use them as wraps and fill with sauteed vegetables or beans.”
