Flat bread crisps with Hummus

Serves 4
Hands-on time 40 min
Oven time 50-55 min

This recipe is full of flavour; complimented by a range of spices; from cumin to paprika. As the flatbread crisps are baked rather than fried, they’re not only healthier than store-bought crisps, but will also keep fresher for longer when kept in an airtight container for family fun days

Method: For the crisps

01 Heat the oven to 190 C. Lightly flour 2 baking sheets.

02Put the flour, salt, cumin and paprika in a bowl and mix it all together. Now add the oil and slowly add the water bringing the dough together. You might not need to use all the water or may find that you need to add a bit more.

03Leave the dough in a bowl, cover with cling film and let it rest for 15 mins.

04Divide the dough into 2 portions and roll out each portion on a clean surface until only a couple of mm thin. Cut the sheet into small pieces, either square or rectangle. Place these pieces on the baking sheet and brush them with the beaten egg. Sprinkle the onion seeds on top and bake for 20 minutes until crispy and no longer sticking to the baking sheet.

Leave them aside to cool before serving.

Method: For the hummus

01Add all the ingredients in a blender and grind to a smooth hummus. You might need to add a couple of tbsp of water to it. Place it on the serving plate and drizzle some chilli oil on top and sprinkle some parsley before serving.

02Whether you’re making these crisps as a snack for a day out or a family picnic, or simply as a mid-afternoon treat for the kids at home, with Elephant Atta Chakki Gold you’ll ensure your family is getting a dish that’s not only delicious, but good for them too!
