Fire crackers with love

On to crackers today. Played with some flavor combinations. Got very interesting results. Here are some that I liked. You can use just plain salt as well. You could also add crushed black pepper.

kalonji/onion seeds + sesame seeds + salt – great with Indian tea

Oregano + rosemary + thyme + salt – great with italian or mexican dips

crushed fennel seeds + coriander seeds + salt – by itself loved this combo, flavorful. Goes well with India tea.

everything Or Achari combo – crushed fennel seeds + coriander seeds + red chili flakes + ajwain + sesame seeds + kalonji/ onion seeds – firecrackers in the mouth 🙂



⅔ cup butter

1 tsp sugar

½ tsp salt

2 cups flour

1 egg

2 – 3 tbsp cold water



Heat the oven to 400°F.

Mix butter, sugar, salt, water and egg in a bowl and mix well.

Add the flour and mix quickly only until it holds together. Do not overwork.

Roll out the dough and cut into any shapes you like. You can poke the dough with fork. If you don’t you will get a puffed cracker. Your choice.

Bake for 10 mins or until golden brown.

Serve with dip or hot India tea.
