Total Time1 hr 35 mins
Keyword: sesame stick
Servings: 3 cups

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (about 5 ounces) whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup (about 2 ounces) toasted sesame seeds
  • ¼ cup (about 1 1/2 ounces) cup fine cracked wheat
  • ¼ tsp turmeric
  • ¼ tsp beetroot powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder or to taste
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 4 tbsp sesame oil, plain not toasted finishing oil
  • 6 tbsp water

Instructions

  • Add the flour, sesame seeds, cracked wheat, turmeric, beet powder, garlic powder, and salt to a mixing bowl and whisk to combine.
  • In a small bowl, mix water and oil.

  • Mix thoroughly. Knead any remaining bits into the dough by hand.
  • Divide the dough in half and flatten each portion into 1-inch thick squares.

  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to 1/8-inch thickness and cut it into small rectangles (around 1/4-inch by 3/4-inch) using a knife or pizza wheel. Alternatively, you can roll and cut the dough according to your desired shape but make sure the size is uniform is to achieve even baking.
  • Roll each piece between your palms to form think sticks (or leave the pieces as they are) and place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, then flip the pieces on the other side so that the bottoms don't brown.
  • Continue baking for 5 to 10 minutes until the sticks are crisp but not brown.
  • Remove the sticks from the oven and let them cool entirely. Store in an airtight container.
