Whole Wheat Sesame Crackers

BM # 48  Week 4  Day 1

For this week I have chosen the theme Naashta Time. The word Naashta literally means breakfast in India. One also refers to Naashta as an evening snack. So when we talk of Naashta, we can indulge into so many varieties. It could be light, could be heavy. Freshly made hot Idlis, Dhoklas, Chole Kulche, or Vada Pav Paani, a Sandwich, the list is endless. It could also include longer shelf life snacks like Sev, Bhakarwadi or some namkeens. A cup of tea for the grown ups, juice or milk for the younger kids could complete the snack. Inspite of such a huge variety, yet we are  lost as to what to serve. Well this week I have three super recipes, which could be served as a snack,  so do come back again to check some more Snacks.

For today I have some crackers. These are whole wheat crackers, quick , simple to make and yet delicious. You have the choice to deep fry or bake these. I baked them.these could be served with any chutney, or relished as it is. I served these with mango chutney for a sham ka naashta, which is an evening snack.

Whole wheat sesame crackers
1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup sesame seeds, black or white
1/2 teaspoonSalt
1/4 cup oil
8 to 9 tablespoons water to bind the dough

Preheat oven to 180C for 15 minutes.
Sift the flour and salt.
Add sesame seeds.
Add oil and rub in to make fine bread crumbs.
Gradually add water to bind the dough.
Divide the dough into two balls, roll each about 1/8 " thick.
Cut squares of desired size .
Place the squares on un-greased baking sheet and bake for about 15-20 minutes or until the crackers are crisp. 
The baking time depends on the thickness of the squares.
Store in a tightly covered container up to 1 week.
