    My experience with Chick Pea flour is to very carefully mix it, raise it, bake throw it in the wheel barrow and dump it for the hogs... They love that crap :) Just my opinion ;)

    Have eaten Pakoras made from chick pea flour and they are delicious...chick pea flour can also be used in soups and stews in moderation as a thickening agent as a substitute for corn starch or plain flour.

    I like Chick Peas just not a fan of the flour, kind of like acorn flour I love white oak acorns (Once the tannin is leached out and they are roasted) The flour just doesn't work for me :)

    I've found chickpea flour for baked goods works better if you cut it with some other things like tapioca starch or potato starch

    Yes, frequently and like any other food it depends on what one is making and how they do it. They can be excellent. They can be pig food, just like anything else
