This is my first attempt with wheat in baking and it was really good.I always want to try with wheat but something stops me.(first of all my kashif doesn’t like anything with wheat even chapathi)But this one i made for hubby who love to munch on such oil free snacks.Some maida is added.
This is for sure a healthy option for snacking.An oil free and less amount of all purpose flour using here makes it a healthy snack.This will be a great option for the people who are dieting,to stop their cravings to munch on something crispy.
My younger one loved it.No surprise in that because he eat whatever that’s crispy and crunchy!Hehe!But this one i’m so happy because it’s a good option.This bread sticks is perfect to serve along with soups and pastas.

Mix all the dry ingredients and olive oil in a large bowl and then start kneading the dough.Knead it to a soft and pliable dough for 8 to 10 minutes.I used approximately 1 to 1/2 cup(Don’t add all at one go)
Let it rest in a warm place until its doubled in size.
Step by step instructions.

4.Do same with all
5.Cut from the center
