Ajwain Crackers

Postpartum cravings are real! I din’t crave much for anything except apple and watermelon during my pregnancy but I’m craving a lot these days. My dad used to but us these crackers and cream biscuits from a local bakery and these were our after school snacks. I din’t know what these crackers were called so I had to guess the ingredients and google the recipe and both google and my tastebuds din’t fail me. I found a recipe which seemed close and I tweaked it a bit.

  • All- purpose flour/wheat/wheat+ragi- 2 cups
