Savory Crackers

Welcome to the 41st edition of Blogging Marathon. For the first week I have chosen to present some options for a picnic hamper. Be it a day picnic, a backyard picnic or an overnight camping trip into the wilderness, it is sometimes a challenge to pack some sustenance. It always helps to have some choices ready. Don't you agree?

It is such a pleasure to see smiles all around and kids having fun out in the great weather we have right now! With just a wee bit of planning we can make that experience a much more pleasurable one.

I thought a bowl of Butter Cookies, a bowl of these Savory Crackers, a bowl of Watermelon and some coconut water would provide some enjoyable sustenance to my kids to have a picnic in our backyard with their friends on a sunny afternoon! 

Recipe Source - Amma (My mom)
Ingredients - 

Whole Wheat Flour 1 cup
All Purpose Flour / Maida 1 cup
Baking Powder 1/4 tsp
Milk Powder 2 Tbsp
Sugar powdered 1 Tbsp
Butter/ Olive Oil 2 Tbsp
Salt, Red Chilli Powder as needed 
Ajwain / Vamu 1/4 tsp
Asafoetida couple pinches
Cumin seeds / Jeera 1 tsp
Peanuts, roasted, coarsely crushed 1/4 cup (Optional)
Sesame Seeds 2 tsp (Optional)

Savory Crackers

Method Of Preparation -

Mix all the ingredients well and add warm water to knead a soft dough.

Make about 8-10 manageable portions of the dough. Roll out each portion of the dough into a thin circle, cut into desired shapes. Poke each of them with a fork so that they don't puff out while baking. Continue with the rest of the dough - rolling, cutting out shapes.

Preheat the oven to 375 °F.

Place each of the cut out shape on a parchment paper lined baking tray, about 1/2 an inch apart.

Bake in the middle rack of a preheated oven for about 12-14 min and flip all of them. Bake for about 5 more minutes until they are all evenly browned.

Remove and let them cool on a wired rack. 

Store them in an air tight container and carry it on a picnic!
