I am in such a happy place right now – Luscious Lynn surprised us by coming home early for the holidays – she arrived Monday morning
– for myself and Rajen it’s a wonderful start to this festive season. One of the few goodies that I have made and kept in the freezer for this holiday season is the scrumptious onion crackers. I am not sure where I got this recipe from originally – I enjoy crackers and these are definitely worth trying.
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
4 tsp sesame seeds (lightly toasted in a non-stick
1 ½ tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
1 ½ big onions, finely chopped
3 green hot chillies, finely chopped
(adjust amount to your taste)
Handful of fresh coriander, finely chopped
1/3 cup oil
4 Tablespoon butter, melted
¼ cup warm water
Coarse salt for sprinkling on top of crackers
In a big bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt,
sesame seeds, sugar, green chillies, coriander leaves and half of the chopped
onions and mix well.
Add the oil and butter and mix well. The mixture
will be a bit lumpy.
Add the warm water to make thick dough.
Knead well for about 2 – 3 minutes and cover this
with a damp cloth and keep aside for 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 180C.
Gently knead in the rest of the onions into the dough.
Do not worry if it is not mixed in evenly.
Spread a greaseproof sheet of paper onto a working
Take a small ball of dough and place it between 2
greaseproof sheets of paper and roll out into a flat disc.
Cut into rounds using a sharp edged cookie cutter.
Repeat this process for the remaining dough.
Place on a greased sheet and prick holes using a
fork. This prevents the cracker from puffing up.
Sprinkle with the coarse salt.
Bake for about 25 – 30 minutes until they are brown.
These are deliciously moreish – I just wished that I had doubled the quantity. Glad the glitch in wordpress is sorted – can now post – this was prepared for posting on Monday morning – better later than never.
