Kasoori methi ... 1 tbsp

1. Mix the mentioned spices and kasoori methi in the flour. Add salt and 2 tbsps of oil. Mix everything together.
2. Now knead the flour with warm water and make the dough.
3. Roll out a portion of it using a rolling pin. Do not use dry flour while rolling.
4. Cut out any shapes you prefer. Place them in a greased baking tray. Pierce them with a fork to avoid bubbles.
5. Bake them in a pre-heated oven until golden brown and crisp.( It takes about 20 - 22 mins in the medium setting - 200 degrees C )
Cool them and store in an air tight container.
Note: The original recipe had dry curry leaves but I have replaced them with kasoori methi. Similarly you can have many variations like adding ajwain or sesame seeds.
Kindly note that the baking time may vary a little depending on the type and size of the oven and also the thickness of the crackers. It is usually faster in small OTG s and convection microwave ovens. You have to set the temperature accordingly.
