~ Snake Sticks~
Little one (shhh!!me too) is a sucker for cute food
and a die hard fan for all those cutie pie treats that
makes her tiny little heart top of the world.Healthy
homemade food that resembles a character from
the zoo, fairy-tales or cartoon coloring book are
always a bigggg hit amongst kids . I couldn't stop
myself from heading to the kitchen after seeing
these cuties at Crista's blog..... Little one loved
dipping the snakes in her soup eshhhhh .....
Snake (snack) Sticks !!
Cumin flavored savory breadsticks .
Original recipe states Refrigerated Breadstick dough, but its
not easy to find here hence I happily used the regular jeera
(cumin) cracker recipe n it worked wonderfully.
Gliding thru the oven ..Hissssss.......
Recipe for Cumin flavored breadsticks -
Ingredients - 2 cups refined flour ( i took 1 cup whole wheat & 1 cup refined ),
1 1/2 tsp salt , 1 tsp baking powder , 1 1/2 tsp cumin seeds, 1/4 tsp roasted cumin
powder,1 tsp powdered sugar , 1/2 cup olive or refined oil, 1 egg , a few
peppercorns , dry whole chillies and wooden skewers .
Method- Sift together flour, salt & baking powder, mix in the cumin seeds &
cumin powder. Beat the egg & mix in sugar & oil . Knead into soft dough
adding a few tbsps of water as required. Divide the dough into 15 portions &
roll each into sticks (coils ) . Wrap each coil around a greased skewer . Flatten
one of the ends to resemble a snake's mouth & place two peppercorns for the
eyes. Cut out a piece from the chilly & put it as the tongue. Place on a greased
tray & bake in a preheated oven at 180C / gas mark 4 for 20-25 mins
or until light brown & crisp . Cool & serve .
