Beans flour is made by grinding dried beans into a fine powder. It's a versatile ingredient used in various cuisines around the world. In West Africa, especially Nigeria, beans flour is used to make dishes like "akara" (bean cakes) and "moi moi" (a steamed bean pudding). It offers a gluten-free alternative to wheat flour and is rich in protein, fiber, and other nutrients. Making beans flour involves drying the beans thoroughly, milling them into a fine consistency, and then sieving to obtain a smooth flour. It can be stored in a cool, dry place for future use.
