Chickpea Crackers

Crackers has been on my list to try for long time. When Priya chose crackers as the theme for this month's Home Bakers Challenge, I was very happy. Crackers are crisp and flat biscuits, that can be eaten on their own or served with dips or cheese. It can be plain or flavored with herbs, seeds or cheese. She suggested 4 recipes, out of which I tried the chickpea crackers.

These chickpea crackers are really additive. First time, I made a small batch and it got over in no time, so next time I doubled the quantity. These homemade crackers are much healthier than the store brought ones. They are very easy to make and does not need much time too. Store them in airtight containers and the crackers will stay crisp for many days.

Recipe Source ~ Versatile Vegetarian Kitchen
Yields 60 crackers


1 ½ cup all-purpose flour / maida
½ cup chickpea flour / besan
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp dried thyme
½ tsp red chilly powder
½ tsp red chilly flakes
½ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp onion powder
6 tbsp olive oil
5-6 tbsp water


1. In a large bowl add all-purpose flour, chickpea flour, sugar, salt, thyme, chilly powder, chilly flakes, garlic powder, onion powder and mix well.

2. Then add olive oil and mix well into the dough. Then add 1 tablespoon water at a time and make a dough. The dough need not be very smooth. It is fine if its little crumbly.

3. Preheat the oven to 170 C | 325 F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

4. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough very thin, about 1/8-inch thick . Using a pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut into 1" squares. Or use a cookie cutter of your desired shape.

5. Place them on the baking sheet, leaving little space in between them. Bake for 10 minutes and then rotate the pan. Continue baking for another 5 minutes or until lightly golden.

6. Let the crackers cool completely. Transfer them to an airtight container.

Notes and Tips
  • Garlic powder, onion powder and thyme are optional. Also you can add any herb you like.
  • Keep watching the crackers closely after rotating as they can quickly turn from golden color to dark brown-black.
  • I made them little spicy , so adjust the spice levels according to your taste.
