EGGLESS MULTIGRAIN CRACKERS (SAVOURY)
I’m little enthusiastic when it comes to baking & new trials. Recently I’ve been to India. During my visit I wanted to bake some savoury for my mom & dad , as they’re not very fond of cookies. We used to make thattai , a kind of deep fried crackers. With little variations, I tried with millets & baked it. Surprisingly it came out very well & felt happy to see them munching these crackers. I recommend this as its a healthy option, with the usage of all millet flours, guilt free snacks for all ages & felt good that we are indulging into healthy stuff.
– 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
– 1/4 cup of Ragi ( finger millet flour)
– 1/4 cup of Bajra ( pearl millet flour)
– 1/4 cup of Jowar flour (sorghum)
– 1/4 cup of Thinai flour ( foxtail millet flour)
– 1/4 cup of quick cooking oats
– 1/4 cup of sesame seeds , roasted
– 1/4 cup of olive oil
– 1/8 cup of roasted powdered peanuts
– 1 tbspn jeera powder
– 1/2 tbspn black pepper powder
– 1 teaspoon red chilli powder
– 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
– 1/4 cup of yogurt
– salt & hing as required
-1/4 teaspoon of turmeric powder
In a mixing bowl, add all the dry ingredients & oil. Mix everything together using your hand so that all the ingredients are uniformly mixed. Now add yogurt & water in batches & mix well to get chapati dough consistency. Smear some oil on top to avoid layering & allow it to rest for 15-20 mins.
Divide the dough into four equal portions & roll it into a big circle of 1/4 inch thickness. Using cookie cutter , make the crackers into desired shape & arrange it in the greased baking tray or lined with parchment paper or baking sheet.
Preheat the oven at 175 deg celcius for 10 mins. Bake the crackers at 160 deg C FOR 20 to 25 minutes. Please keep an eye after 15 minutes. Once the edges started turning brown , then remove the tray & allow it to cool so that it became more crispy.
You can have this with tea. It can be served with dips made of yogurt or hummus. But I like eating as it is. Enjoy !!
– You can use any two or three millet flours of your choice & availability.
– You can also add dry methi leaves (kasuri methi) ,for extra flavoring.
