About:

Crackers are a delicious alternative to chips and can be served with afternoon tea or in a canapΓ© spread. Try serving them a soup or a cuppa. This is an easy recipe. Switch and swap flours and seeds to make a new crackers as often you feel like working out your fore arms.

Sesame seeds are packed with protein, iron, zinc, magnesium, calcium and phytic acid while being low in carbohydrates. They may help lower cholesterol levels, and are a well-known source of vitamin E plus omega-6 and monounsaturated fats.

  3. Your crackers look delicious and the mix of ingredients is really interesting. Can I just use regular whole rolled oats and run them through the food processor to get powdered oats?

  9. Hi Chitraji, this snack item looks yummy! I wanted to try biscuits that are cooked on tava. I think, I can try this on tava too, what say?

    • Sindhu – Every query you have is so brilliant…I have a limitation due to the availability of gas stove here…I didn’t try much on cooker because of the same reason…However biscuits can be made on heavy metal Tava which are called Scones, which are a thicker version of biscuits. The limitation is it won’t be much crunchy. If still required they can be deep fried with an added calorie like Shankarpali…
