How To Make Crackers With TomatoesWhen I decided to make no sundried tomato crackers, I wanted to make it a gluten-free recipe. But then I tend to include fiber-rich oats in almost every recipe of mine, so they had to be fitted in here as well.
I will try to come up with a gluten-free tomato cracker recipe soon. Hey, I have already shared one chickpea flour cracker recipe, which is a vegan recipe as well. Check here.
Make a tomato puree. What I did was added 1/4 tsp of olive oil in a 3-liter cooker and then dropped in the chopped tomatoes. Wait for 2 whistles and turn off the flame. Open the cooker and mash the tomatoes. If you have tomato puree handy, it can be used in the recipe.
Take besan or chickpea flour.
Gather all other dry ingredients, including rice flour, jeera, oatmeal, chopped coriander leaves, and chopped green chilly. You may use dried red chilly powder to make your tomato crackers spicy.
Add carom seeds or ajwain.
Add hing and olive oil.The goodness of olive oil makes this cracker recipe a healthier snacking alternative to all the buttery stuff.
Add baking soda, jaggery powder, and salt.
This is how the flour looks mixed with olive oil.
Mix the dry and wet ingredients. If it looks like a sticky dough. Please add more besan. But I added more oat powder to make a stiff dough - should not be too hard though.
Look at the color of the cracker dough. I am loving it already. If your dough still feels soft, cover it in a cling film and refrigerate for half an hour. Then preheat oven or microwave convection at 180 degrees for 8-10 mins. I used my airfryer for this purpose. preheat airfryer for 3-4 mins.
Remove the dough from the fridge and roll it out like a chapati - use a cookie cutter or small bangle to cut out the crackers. Donot forget to make incisions in each cracker with a fork.
Look at these golden beauties!!!No I do not claim this to be one of the best cookie recipes, but it surely is a keeper.
What do these crispy crunchies tell you - bake them immediately!
Bake for 10 minutes in microwave convection at 180 degrees or airfry at the same temperature for 12 minutes. If the savory crackers feel soft, bake or airfry longer. It took my airfryer almost 18 mts to airfry these perfectly. Keep an eye on your tomato crackers and allow these golden beauties to cool down before munching on them.
One suggestion: keep the pieces thinner to bake/airfry them quickly. In my case, these were a little thicker, so took me longer. Nevertheless tasty stuff!
