GRAM FLOUR ( BE­SAN) AND MILK

Hair - - Flavour Of The Month -

With a host of nour­ish­ing at­tributes and de­li­cious taste, Ben­gal gram is one of In­dia’s most im­por­tant pulses. Eas­ily avail­able across the coun­try, it is pop­u­larly used for pre­par­ing a va­ri­ety of dishes — from sweet to savoury — in its whole and ground forms. And be­san, that is Ben­gal gram flour, has long been used in top­i­cal ap­pli­ca­tions for its many at­tributes.

In­dian brides-to-be have tra­di­tion­ally ap­plied up­tan — a paste made of be­san, turmeric, san­dal­wood blended with rose wa­ter or milk or cream of milk or yo­ghurt with or with­out a bit of se­same or al­mond oil on their skin. Washed off af­ter half an hour, the pack re­moves dead cells and nour­ishes the skin, leav­ing it clean, clear and glow­ing!
