Multigrain Crackers



In my endeavor to eat healthy & cook as much as I can at home , I came up with a recipe for these multigrain crackers that I fell in love with after coming to US. The various multigrain crackers that were available here became a permanent part of my pantry for a long time. But with  so much of baking nowadays  I had been thinking of baking them for a long time but just kept putting it off for something or the other. Finally I gave in to my craving to have them . I kind of devised my own recipe & added as much grains as I possibly could & they taste awesome & what to say about having them with some homemade Guacamole , I think I should stop baking for sometime now as I have been popping these little bites into my mouth all day.
Here goes the recipe.......

Ingredients: 


1/4 cup All purpose flour ( Maida)
1/4 cup whole wheat flour( Atta)
1/4  cup gram flour ( Besan)
1/4 cup cornmeal
2 tablespoon sesame seeds
1 tablespoon poppy seeds
1 tablespoon Ground Flaxseed
1/4 cup oil ( I used olive oil)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp Baking soda
Water as required



Method:


Mix all ingredients together & knead with just enough water to form a dough. Knead for a minute or two
so that everything binds well together. Divide the dough into two , roll each ball into a circle with a rolling pin  as thick as we would do for Flatbread ( Roti, Chapati) . Cut  with small round  cookie cutter . Place them on a well greased baking sheet.
You can roll the leftover cuttings again into a ball, roll out again & cut more rounds . Will make about 30-35 small crackers. Bake at 300 degree F  preheated oven for about 8 minutes & reduce the temp. to 250 for another 5 minutes. Keep checking to see the cookies dont over brown as every oven is different.
Enjoy with cheese, guacamole, ketchup or as desired.







Enjoy............
