Samrat Besan is a pulse flour obtained from grounded chickpeas known in several Asian countries as gram. It is a main ingredient in Indian, Pakistani, Nepali and Bangladeshi cuisines. Gram flour can be made by grounding either raw or roasted gram beans. The roasted variety has a delicious flavor, while the raw variety has a slightly bitter taste. It is mixed with water or yoghurt to form a paste, which is used as a facial exfoliant, especially in India.
