Millet Crackers

C for Chad it is! What I found interesting about this country was that they use Rice, Sorghum and Millets in so many ways and I wanted to definitely showcase a unique way of using millets. They make pancakes, porridge as well.

I agree this is not a very healthy way to consume millets but once in a while, the kids can indulge. Since I made these addictive crackers during their summer vacation, they were very happy and they shared with their playmates as an evening snack with some chocolate milk. It was heartening to see their milk stained smiles!!

Ingredients - 

*Millet Flour 1/2 cup
Wheat Flour 1/2 cup
Sugar 2 Tbsp
Flax seed powder 1 Tbsp (Egg replacer)
Vegetable Oil, hot 2 Tbsp
Canola/Vegetable Oil for deep frying

* I put the foxtail millet in a dry grinder to make the flour which was a little grainy.

Millet Crackers

Method Of Preparation -

In a small bowl, add 1 tablespoon of warm water and the flax seed powder. Set aside.

In a mixing bowl, add the flours, sugar and the hot oil. Mix well so the oil is incorporated into the flour. Mix in the flax seed mixture as well.

Add water if needed and knead into a stiff dough.

Roll out the dough on a floured surface and slice into 1 inch strips about 1/8th inch thick.

Heat oil in a wok/kadai and after the oil is hot enough, gently slide the sliced dough pieces into the oil and fry them on both sides until they are all uniformly browned.

Remove onto paper towels to drain excess oil. Serve it as a tea-time snack.
