So let’s take a look at some of the healthy but tasty besan recipes that will aid your weight loss journey:

Besan halwa

This halwa is prepared by roasting the gram flour and adding milk to it.

To make it healthier, you can use jaggery to add the sweetness or stick to sugar as per your liking.

Adding some dry fruits not only enhances its flavour but also makes it visually appealing.


Besan ki roti

As mentioned earlier, gram flour carries fewer calories compared to wheat flour.

It is a perfect substitute to cut down on those extra calories.

For this, you need to mix gram flour with wheat flour in an equal quantity and knead it.

People who prefer thin chapatis must increase the amount of wheat flour in the mixture.

You can add a tinch of garlic and coriander leaves to enhance the flavour if you like.



Gatte ki sabzi

It is a rustic gravy dish from Rajasthan, which is prepared by making balls of besan and boiling them in water.

Later, those balls are cooked in a gravy made of onions, ginger, and garlic paste, along with spices.

This flavourful dish is usually enjoyed with rice.



This is our favourite snack, which is entirely made of gram flour.

It might surprise you that Dhokla contains only 45–50 calories because it is steamed.

You can enjoy it with your breakfast or with your evening tea.
