I am a big time snack person. Sometimes I feel I am better when compared to my uncles. First thing in the morning after brushing, my uncle’s used to eat snacks like muruku, sedai which is deep fried in oil ๐Ÿ˜€ , we grew up that way. Working in IT industry sitting for hours together isn’t good for health with this kind of eating habits. So we all changed slowly. I try to use very little oil when I cook, and I get scoldings from my grandma ( this happens when I cook in her presence ). She as well changed for us :), specially for my grandpa who is a heart attack patient. Now Oil usage has been reduced to a great level at my home.

We have a very common sweet snack diamond cuts, which is made out of all purpose flour and sugar fried in oil. But at my home we used to make it with wheat flour and sugar, fried in oil. Now I want to reduce sugar consumption as well. So I made a salty version of it by baking ๐Ÿ™‚


Whole Wheat flour : 1 cup

Salt : 1 teaspoon

Pepper powder : 1 1/2 teaspoon

Cumin powder : 1 teaspoon

Corriander powder : 1 teaspoon

Carom Seeds/ Thymol Seeds : 1 teaspoon

Olive oil : 1 teaspoon


Mix all the ingredients in a bowl. Add water slowly and make dough out of it.


Once dough making is done , rest it for 15 to 20 mins.

Next divide the dough to 2 pieces, make a ball out of it.ย Then roll the balls dusting a little wheat flour into round shape with a rolling pin. You can do it the similar way like the Pizza base. It should not be thick or too thin, make it medium.



Cut them in to pieces of any shape you want, I did the diamond shape as it the traditional way which is done ๐Ÿ™‚ Pricked some holes using fork in the pieces.

Then place them in baking tray. Preheat oven to 350F. Once done bake it for 20 minutes. If needed flip sides for even baking.

This has just the one teaspoon of oil to hold the dough. No more oil. Its a good tea time snack ๐Ÿ™‚
