Cheesy multi-grain crackers





So I discovered this site that creates nutrition labels, and fed in the ingredients in my multi-grain cracker recipe.

And uh huh, it turned out that  my crackers could do with help in the nutrition department!

I added some cheese and some yoghurt to add calcium oomph and voila -  6% of  your calcium needs and 8% of your iron requirement in a few crunchy bites!

Ingredients 

Serves: 4
Time: 25 minutes (Preparation: 10 minutes, Baking time: 15 minutes)

1/2 cup finger millet flour (you could replace this with any millet flour)
1/2 cup wholewheat flour
1 tbs sunflower oil
1 tbs plain yoghurt
1/4 cup grated cheese (lightly packed)
1/4 cup water (approximately)

Method


Knead all the ingredients into a soft dough.  A little rest of about 15 minutes helps (I meant for the dough, although I would imagine a siesta would help anybody).

Roll out as thinly as you can. I am afraid, the thinnest I could go was 2 mm.  Prick the surface with a fork and cut into squares.

Bake at 200ÂșC for 12-15 minutes or until the crackers start turning a splotchy light brown. Cool on a rack.

Note

The crackers will get crisper as they cool.

The nutrition facts in the table are for a recipe with half a cup of raw millets. The site didn't feature finger millet flour or any other millet flour, but I would imagine that flour would only pack in more millet goodness.
