Layered Crackers

Baked Cracker3


Layering the crackers ensures even baking. I have added Ajwain/Carom seeds for the flavour. For a healthy version I tried baking them, and it turned out crispy.

These can be served as an appetizer/snacks

Yields-18-20 crackers
Preparation time-15 minutes
Waiting time-30 minutes
Baking time-10-12 minutes


  • Wheat flour-1 1/2cup
  • Oil-2tbsp +for spreading ( I used olive butter)
  • Salt- to taste
  • Chilli powder-1tsp
  • Carom seeds/ajwain-2tsp
  • Cold water for the dough


  • Sieve the flour, salt, chilli powder, carom seeds in a mixing bowl.
  • Heat 2tbsp oil in a small pan and add to the flour-using a spoon/spatula mix well to form crumbs.
  • Add cold water little at a time and mix until everything comes together to form a dough.
  • Cover/wrap with a cling film/kitchen towel and allow it to rest for 20-30 minutes.
  • After resting time divide the dough to the equal portions and roll a dough balls to 4-5Β inch diameter circle and similarly rolls other 2-3 dough balls and set aside.

For Crackers:

  • Pre-heat the oven at 180 deg (Fan assisted), line and grease the baking tray with baking sheet/foil and set aside.
  • Spread olive oil/butter on the one rolled dough- place the second rolled dough and spread olive oil and place the 3rd and 4th similarly. (can do more layers if desired)

  • Finally roll the layered dough circle to form a tight log and cut into 1/2 inch thick pieces. Flatten each one with your palm and roll again into 2-3 inch diameter circle.Baked Cracker2
  • Arrange them on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes (flipping half way).
  • Once baked allow it to cool and store in an air tight container.

  • Plain flour can also be used alternatively to wheat flour.
  • You can include as may layers as possible as it makes more flaky.
  • These can be store in an air tight container for 8-10 days.
