Baked Multigrain Puris
My toddler loves crackers She wants crackers all day. So, I decided to make multigrain crackers (multigrain puri) at home. I baked the puris so that we can enjoy them without any guilt. I used whole wheat flour (ata), Teff flour (an ancient Ethiopian grain), Ragi flour and Jawar flour for my mix. You can try to mix different flour per your preference.
1/2 Cup Whole Wheat Flour,
1/4 Cup Teff Flour,
1/4 Cup Ragi Flour,
1/4 Cup Jawar Flour, (Sorghum Flour)
2 Tablespoon Oats,
2 Tablespoon Flax Seeds Powder,
1 Tablespoon Sesame Seeds,
1.5 Teaspoon Baking Soda,
Salt to Taste,
4 Tablespoon Cold Butter, Cut into Small Pieces
1/4 Cup Cold Water,
Combine all the dry ingredients in a pan. Mix well. Then add the butter. Mix by breaking up the butter pieces and combining it with flour. The mixture should resemble crumbs. Now add the water, a little at a time to make dough. Cover.
Heat the oven to 450 degrees F.
Take some portion of the dough, and roll it into a thin disc. You want to roll it as thin as you can. Cut into different shapes with cookie cutters (for kids), or round shape and arrange them on a prepared baking sheet in a single layer. They can be placed close together, as they won't expand much. Bake for 7 minutes or until the upper starts to turn golden brown. Flip the puris and bake for another 7-10 minutes. Take out of the oven. Let them cool completely before storing in an airtight container. Enjoy with Garam Chai.
FYI: I made some tiny "crackers" for my daughter by cutting them into different shapes such as flowers, diamond, star etc, etc. She loves to snack on the crackers as is, and sometimes she likes to add them to her soups:).
