Masala Cheese Crackers: How To Make Oatmeal Delicious


Do not be misled by the title here. Perhaps, these are minty masala crackers, but with a healthy twist. Of course, when you are here at Mercury IMP, you have got to be served with healthy recipes, right? What is healthy and what isn't healthy is one question that keeps you pondering. Of course, family health comes first, and you want your kids to eat healthy. Kids love everything cheesy, but cheese is not too healthy an option- but if you have active kids, every ingredient can be forgiving, for their physical activity can negate all the unhealthy features of an ingredient. Nevertheless, we will still be focusing on health and healthy ingredients here - with this simple recipe of minty cheese masala crackers.

Ingredients
1/2 cup- paneer (I have used the leftover milk solid when making ghee- paneer can work equally good here)
1/4 cup- powdered oats
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.

Refined Sugar-Free Quinoa Digestives: Fiber Rich, Nutrient Dense, Sugarless Quinoa Recipe

Have you heard of quinoa digestives? I did an Internet search to find it out, but couldn't trace any quinoa digestives recipe. Perhaps we have yet not moved to supergrains when it comes to digestives. When it comes to digestives, most of us can't think beyond whole wheat flour and oats. Perhaps dgestives require fiber-rich oats because it gives the biscuit the perfect digestives structure. I love oats so much so that I have compiled a collection of over 200 oats recipes. Now coming to quinoa digestives recipe, I have tried out too many digestives, including amaranth digestives, pistachio digestives, Mcvities digestives, and Nutri choice-like digestives. This time I wanted to skip whole wheat and include quinoa. Yes, if you remember, I have already shared a few quinoa recipes here, including quinoa nankhatais without baking soda/baking powder.

What I did next was exactly this!
My goal with each recipe is to get the better out of me!  Quinoa substitutes whole wheat

Kid-Friendly Badam Oats Cookies: Sugarfree, Fiber Rich, Eggless

Recently, there is a Sunfeast advertisement on Moms Magic cookies. This has attracted my attention. So what happened next is history. As you already know me, the cookie big has bitten me badly, so I jumped into experimenting with badam cookies. I have never tasted these cookies from Sunfeast, as I do not buy outside biscuits these days. So the oats cookie recipe is the result of my own healthy baking experiment. Did the experiment disappoint?
Of course, not!

You have got to be a cookie lover to try out a new cookie every other day. My airfryer has made life easier for me, and I find it the best investment for my baking journey.

Ever since my airfryer homecoming, I have always chosen to go for airfryer cookies, and not touched my convection ever since. That's the beauty of airfryer baking.

Okay, so let's come back to the badam cookie recipe. Did I say this is a no raising agent cookie recipe?
