Spicy Crackers


There's a limit to the number of fried snacks you can eat or serve at a party. Pop corn is a good idea as is Bhel Puri. I found that these crackers are great with drinks. They're crisp (sort of like thin thattais) and they're baked, not fried. I found the recipe for this in The Cookie Book and modified it. (The recipe called for curry powder which I don't have. Read this for curry powder related amusement.)

1/2 cup Flour

1/4 tsp Salt

1 tsp Sambar Powder

1/4 tsp Chilli Powder

2 tbsp Coriander, chopped

2 tbsp Water


Preheat the oven to 350F.


Mix all the ingredients to make a firm dough. Knead well and then allow to sit for 5-10 minutes. Divide the dough into 15-20 small balls. Roll out each ball thinly, using a little flour if necessary. Place on a cookie sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes, turning them once when they are halfway through.


These crackers taste great with some salsa on the side. I'm quite sure you could play around with the spices to get different flavours each time. This time, since my crackers have chilli powder and coriander leaves, I'm sending this to FIC: Red and Green. I'm also sending these to JFI: Cilantro.

Hi Raaga,
My first time to ur blog, Thanks for ur visit and comment at my blog :) hope to c u more often.
Hey liked the easy papads/crackers recipe and using microwave or oven is a fantastic option to avoid the oil. Shall try it out sometime this summer :) thanks

Unusual. I am always on the look out for savoury snacks that don't add to my frame! :)

I bet these tasted out of this world! To save time, I roll out a couple of large thin rotis and cut out little circle or squares.
