My so far "Taste and Create" recipes....

Ingredients :

  • 1 Cup All purpose flour / Maida
  • 1/2 Cup Wheat flour
  • 1 Tsp Active dry yeast
  • 3/4 Cup Luke warm water
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Olive oil
  • 1/2 Tsp Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil for brushing the dough
  • 1/2 Tbsp Olive Oil for greasing the pan / Baking tray
  • 1 Tsp Oregano

Method :

  • Add sugar and yeast in a Lukewarm water and mix well.
  • Keep aside for 10 minutes or until it turns frothy.
  • Add All purpose flour and wheat flour in a bowl and slowly add the yeast mixture.
  • Add 1 1/2 tbsp Olive oil o the flour and knead well to a soft and smooth dough.
  • Grease baking tray or pan with 1/2 tbsp oil, spread the dough on the tray and score rectangles with a sharp knife and cover it with a cling foil 
  • or damp cloth.
  • Set aside till it is puffy ( For me it took 2 Hours).
  • Brush 1 Tbsp Olive oil on the dough, sprinkle oregano over it and press gently.
  • Bake it in a pre-heated oven at 200 degree C for 15 minutes or till the top is brown.
  • Remove from the oven and cool it in a cooling rack.
  • Once it is cool, break into pieces along the scored line and again arrange on a baking tray.
  • Bake it for another 5- 15 minutes.

Note : Baking time for the second time baking depends on the crispiness you 
prefer. I baked it for 15 minutes to get more crunchy.

Serving Options :

Serve with Mayo Sweet Red chilli sauce and Tomato sauce.
