Show me for chips


3/4 cup plain flour (maida)
1/2 tsp dry yeast
a pinch of sugar
4 tbsp roasted sesame seeds (til)
3 tbsp poppy seeds (khus-khus)
2 1/2 tbsp olive oil or oil
salt to taste

  1. Combine the yeast and sugar with ½ cup of warm water in a bowl. Cover and keep aside till it becomes frothy. (approx. 10 minutes. )
  2. Sift the flour. Make a well in the centre and add the yeast and sugar mixture and enough water to make a soft dough. This will take about 7 minutes.
  3. Keep the dough for 30 minutes under a wet cloth till it doubles in volume.
  4. Divide the dough into 5 equal portions and roll each portion into a circle of 150 mm. (6") diameter. Cut each circle into 5 equal triangles. Repeat with the remaining portions to make 20 more triangles.
  5. Brush each triangle with a little oil and sprinkle some sesame seeds and poppy seeds on top.
  6. Arrange these triangles on a greased baking tray and bake in a pre-heated oven at 180°c (360°f) for 10 minutes or till the chips turn golden brown.
