Oatmeal Whole Wheat Carom Seeds Or Ajwain Crackers With Olive Oil

Oats, whole wheat flour or atta, carom seeds or ajwain crackers with olive oil. Crispy crunchy delicious and healthy snacks for your munching time. A super easy recipe made with very few ingredients. Perfect for vegan people.

You can use any gluten free flour like cornmeal, millet flour instead of whole wheat flour to make the crackers gluten free. If you don’t like the flavour of carom or ajwain then you can use fennel seeds or sounf, cumin seeds or jeera, nigella seeds or kalonji, kasuri methi, oregano, rosemary, thyme or any seeds or herbs. Use the flavour according to your taste. Instead of adding in the dough you can sprinkle the seeds or herbs on crackers.
