These gluten free crackers are so addictive, delicious and so easy to make.
My younger sister Kanchan who got married last year and has started cooking some amazingly delicious things. Since my brother in law is quite health conscious, often she comes up with healthy recipes. Recently she gave me this wonderful gluten free crackers recipe and I really wanted to try it out. I have to say I am really proud of her because these crackers are just delicious!
Me and my younger sister have quite a big age gap so when I got married she was just a young kid, who did not take much interest in cooking but definitely had interest in eating good food. 😉 But in last couple of years she has become quite a wizard in the kitchen, she makes amazing Indian sweets amongst other things.
These crackers are inspired by Mathri, it’s a famous and much loved snack from West and North India. They are made of plain flour (all purpose flour) and of course they are fried. If you follow me on Social Media and if you follow my blog you would know I seldom do fried stuff, that’s because I am not a big fan of fried food. But I do like Mathri once in a while, so when I crave them these crackers will definitely do a good job in satisfying those taste buds.
Even though it’s her recipe I have improvised it a bit and I have changed the flavours because I wanted to serve these crackers with hummus.
These are gluten free and vegan, and they go really well with an evening tea as well!
So give these gluten free crackers a try.
- 1 cup chickpea flour
- ½ cup rice flour
- 2 tbsp oil
- 1 tsp or to taste salt
- 1 tsp or to taste black pepper powder
- 1 tsp or to taste red chilli flakes
- 1 tbsp fresh rosemary finely chopped
- About ½ cup boiling water
Preheat the oven to 200C/400F. Line the baking tray with parchment paper.
Mix both flours, spices, salt and rosemary well. Heat oil to a smoking point, add the oil in the flour mixture. Using a spoon mix the hot oil well in the flour.
Now add the boiling water, do not add all the water at once. Using spoon or using a dough hook mix it well until it comes together. You may not need ½ cup hot water or you might need a little bit more. Make a firm dough.
Using rice flour roll the dough in a thin flatbread. Cut it in squares.
Put the squares on the lined baking tray and bake it in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Then turn them over and continue to bake for 8-10 minutes or till the crackers are golden brown.
Cool them completely and store them in an airtight container.
