These crackers are a great snack, either to tide you over before meals, or to munch on during a good movie night. With very few ingredients they're fairly easy to make, just requiring a bit of time and muscle.

They can be made with whichever seeds you prefer, though my favourite is cumin, and served with whatever dip you have lurking in the fridge.

Step 1: Ingredients and Equipment

For this example I was using cumin seeds, but treat any seeds you use in the same way. If they are on the larger side, like coriander seeds, grind them down a bit after toasting or the dough will tear when you try and roll it out.

Ingredients:
  • 275 g plain flour
  • 60 g vegetable shortening
  • 1 1/2 tbsp seeds (cumin, coriander or fennel are all good choices)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup water
Equipment:
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Measuring cups/scales
  • Measuring spoons
  • Clingfilm
  • Small sharp knife (a pizza wheel would also come in handy)
  • Rolling Pin
  • Baking parchment
  • Baking trays
  • Oven heated to 200 C/400 F/Gas 6

For anyone without scales, a good weight to volume conversion guide can be found here.
