Za'atar Flavored Chickpea Flour Crackers

I usually associate besan / chickpea flour to making pakodas and bajjis. But a few days back it suddenly struck me that I could also bake with it and then went on to think of the flavors that would go with besan.

I still have some of the Za'atar that +Priya Srinivasan  gave me , so I combined the two flavors and the crackers turned out better than what I expected. In fact I was so surprised when the kids too polished them off!!!

I used:

Chickpea flour / Besan- 1/2 cup
Sesame seeds - 1/2 teaspoon each of black and white
Baking powder-  1/8 teaspoon
Oil-1 tablespoon
Za'atar - as needed
Salt to taste

 Take the flour, sesame seeds, salt and baking powder in a bowl and whisk.Add oil.
Now add water little by little and mix into a non sticky dough.Don't add water in one go.

Divide the dough into even sized pieces.[I divided it into 12 pieces of 8gms.] .Keep a ball of dough on a greased paper and place another sheet on top of it. Press it down with the back of a tumbler / bowl. Gently remove it from the paper and place on a tray lined with baking sheet. Sprinkle Za'atar over it and press it down with your finger so that it sticks on to it. Prick holes with a fork

Bake in a pre heated oven at 180 degrees C for 10 minutes / till the sides start browning. REmove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool.
