Thermomix Spinach Pakoras

I was doing a Thermomix demonstration at a customers house and they specifically wanted to know if the Thermomix can grind dried chickpeas properly.  I put them in the machine and kept showing the consistency to the expert. (Mother) After 2 minutes they were ground properly. This is something I have always wanted to make as I know they are gluten free and quite yummy.  The only bad thing is that you fry them in oil. (We only do that for special occasions remember.)  The recipe calls for Besan/gram flour?  I didn't know what that was but after googling it, it turns out to be ground up chickpeas made into flour.  Easy my Thermomix will do that for me.  I can grind the exact amount that I need and no going rancid being stored in the cupboard. Brilliant!
