Though garlic is known for its medicinal benefits but it's a big no no at my mother's and MIL's place. During festivals and good days it is completely banned in their kitchen. But me and my DH have always been garlic lovers. Till I moved to Dubai I was unaware of garlic bread but once I tasted it there was no going back. I like to add garlic to most of my gravy dishes.
My DH eats raw garlic to control cholesterol and I always stock
big mouthwash bottle for him :)
Long back I saw this recipe in RC's blog and since have made it quite often. These are so addictive that I was left with only few of these to photograph.
Oats- 1/2 Cup
All Purpose Flour- 1 Cup
Sesame Seeds- 1/4 Cup
Garlic Powder- 2 tsp
Chilli Flakes- 1 tsp
Baking Powder- 1/2 tsp
Sugar- 1 tsp
Salt- To taste
Water- To Knead
- Coarsely grind oats and mix it with all the dry ingredients together in a big bowl.
- Melt the butter and add it in the flour mix. The flour mix will attain bread crumbs like texture.
- Add water little by little and knead the flour to form a stiff dough.
- Cover the dough with a plastic wrap and keep aside for 30 minutes.
- Meanwhile preheat the oven at 190 degrees C.
- Take large portion of the dough and roll it ( the dough will not be sticky and will easily roll without use of any flour) in a square shape.
- Using a knife cut 1 inch wide and 4-5 inches long strips out of it. Arrange the strips on a greased baking sheet.
- Repeat the process with remaining dough.
- Bake for 15 minutes and then turn them over and bake for another 15 minutes. Keep an eye during the last minutes.
Allow them to cool and while these are hot resist yourself hard to stop from eating these crunchy munchy sticks.
