Baked Karumuru(Baked Crunchies)

1. Maida/All purpose Flour - 1 cup
2. Rice Flour - 1/2 cup
3.Sooji/Rava/Semolina - 1/2 cup
4.Aata/Whole wheat flour - a little more than 3/4 cup
5.Lal Mirch Powder/Red Chilli Powder - 1 tsp.
6.Chaat Masala or Garam Masala - 1/2 tsp.(optional)
7.Haldi/Turmeric Powder
8.Asafoetida/Hing Powder - a little less than 1/4 tsp.
9.Baking Powder - 1/2 tsp.(You may omit this if you do not have baking powder)
10.Salt - around 1 tsp.
11.Karipatta/Curry leaves or Corriander leaves


1. Mix maida,rice flour, semolina and aata.
2. Add red chilli powder, haldi, garam masala or chaat masala, baking powder, hing, salt and corriander or curry leaves.
3. Make a soft dough using water. The dough should not be sticky, If so, use maida while making shaping them.
4. Now using ur palms, take a tiny portion of the dough, roll it between your palms so that it gets an elongated shape. Repeat till you use up the entire dough.
5. Place them in a baking tray and bake.
6. I used an OTG(Oven Toaster Griller). I baked them at 180 degree celcius for 5-6 mins. After baking,if they are slightly soft from the inside, bake again for half or one minute, but take care that they do not turn black.
7. Enjoy these evening time crunchies as it is or with chilli sauce.

Variation:You may add sesame seeds(white til) to the mixture while preparing the dough.
