  • Take both the flours in a bowl.Add the oil and mix well with your finger tips so that it coats the flour well.Once mixed it should be like bread crumbs.
  • Add the salt,chilli powder and cumin seeds.Slowly add water little by little to form a stiff dough.Don't knead the dough too long.Cover and keep the dough aside for 20 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 190 ÂșC .
  • Now roll the dough to a big circle or oval shape. Make diamond shapes using a knife.
  • Line a baking sheet with aluminium foil or parchment paper.
  • Slightly grease with oil. Now keep the diamond pieces on the tray and bake for about 15 to 20 mins till the diamonds become light golden in colour.
  • Remove from the oven and let it come to room temperature and serve.
  • I have added little all purpose flour.You can make with full whole wheat flour too but there will be slight difference in texture.
  • Mixing the oil well is important to get crunchy biscuits.
  • You can use kasoori methi or ajwain(omam) instead of cumin seeds to get a different flavour and taste.
