These little goodness balls, otherwise known as koftas, use chickpea flour, which unsurprisingly is dried, ground chickpeas. It brings a sweet, nutty flavour and nutritionally, chickpea flour punches well above wheat flours. But where do you get it, what else can you use it for, and can you substitute another flour?
