Ingredients
1/2 cup- paneer (I have used the leftover milk solid when making ghee- paneer can work equally good here)

3/4 cup- whole wheat flour or multigrain flour
Salt, Black salt, Jeera (cumin seeds)
Mint leaves, coriander leaves,
1 green chilly
1/2 cup grated bottle gourd (lauki) - this was my healthy twist
1/4 tsp- baking powder
1-2 tbsp- cold water
2 tbsp- desi ghee (solid - I kept ghee in the refrigerator before using)
1 tbsp- dry roasted flax seed powder (alsi)

How to make masala paneer crackers: A Kid-friendly recipe

kid friendly masala cheese crackers

Take a food processor.
Add oats, whole wheat, flax seed powder, and baking powder.
Run the processor so that flours are sifted well and baking powder is distributed properly.
Next add butter/ desi ghee.
Run the processor so that butter is equally incorporated in the flours.
Next add crumbled paneer and salt. Again it's time to work with the processor.
Throw in washed but not wet coriander and mint leaves along with cubed/sliced bottle gourd, green chilly and cumin seeds. I did not squeeze bottle gourd and simply threw the lauki cubes in the processor.
Run the grinder again.
Add cold water if the dough looks little dry.
Remove to a wide plate and gather into a ball.
Cover with a cling film and refrigerate for30 minutes.
Remove after half an hour. Roll into a thick chapati and cut into desired shapes.
Use a fork to make insertions.
Bake masala crackers in a preheated oven/mw convection at 170 degrees for 10 -12 mins.
I airfried these crackers for 10 mts.
Allow masala cheese crackers to cool before indulging in baked goodness - yummy, bursting with unique flavors and healthylicious.
