Besan flour mixed with water provides batter coatings for fritters such as pakora. It is the most common basis of the poppadom. It is used for various savoury noodles, and plays a part in certain sweetmeats. Among these are bundia (or boondi, bonde), tiny confections made from a sweetened batter incorporating besan flour (or other pulse meal) dribbled through a perforated ladle into hot oil. The mixture forms pea-sized balls which are coated in syrup.
