Besan Chicken (Bangladesh)
55 mins (prep 30, cooking 25)
11 ingredients
4-6 servings
This recipe is from week 21 of my food blog, Travel by Stove. I am attempting to cook one meal from every nation on Earth, and Bangladesh is my 21st stop. This recipe is made with besan, which is a kind of flour made from dried garbanzo beans. You can make your own, but garbanzo beans are hard and difficult to grind, so you're better off using a prepared besan.
