Ingredients to make Breadsticks

  • 1 1/4 cup Whole wheat flour ( 150 grams)
  • 3-4 grams Instant dry yeast
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp dried Italian mixed herbs
  • 1 -2 tsp Carom seeds (Ajwain)
  • 1/4 cup water ( 50 ml)

How to make Breadsticks

  1. In a mixing bowl take whole wheat flour. Add Salt , Sugar , Oil and Instant dry yeast to it and mix well. Now add the Italian mixed herbs or any seasoning of your choice like chilly flakes, black pepper powder .
  2. Knead a firm dough using 50 ml water. Now this quantity may vary depending upon the quality of flour. The dough should be stiff then what we make for pizza.
  3. Cover the dough with cling film or plastic wrap and keep aside for 1st proofing, which is for 35-40 minutes. After 40 minutes, the dough will increase a little in size.
  4. Now take out the dough from plastic wrap and pinch out small portions and roll them into thin long sticks. If the dough resists, keep the pieces covered for 5 minutes and then roll out.
  5. Arrange these cylindrical sticks onto a parchment paper lined baking tray about 1/2 inch apart as they will increase in volume on baking. Now keep this tray covered for another 30 minutes. This is the second proofing.
  6. Bake the Breadsticks in a preheated oven at 200 degree Celsius for about 20 to 25 minutes , turning the bread sticks halfway through baking until they are firm , crisp and pale golden in colour. Transfer the Breadsticks to rack and cool.
  7. These Breadsticks may be kept, loosely covered with plastic wrap or in a paper bag, at room temperature up to 1 week.Enjoy the crisp Breadstick with Tomato Soup or Guacamole.

My Tip:

If the breadsticks absorb humidity , re crisp in a preheated 325 degree Fahrenheit oven for about 5 minutes.
