Tips For Gluten-Free Breads:

The chickpea and rice flour breads don’t need to be kneaded as these flours do not contain gluten. For this reason, the texture will also be different from ordinary bread. They are quite dense and moist. Don’t leave the mixture to rise for too long. Because there is no gluten, the bread will collapse if it is over-risen.
