We have heard repeatedly that flaxseeds are a great source of Omega-3 fatty acids, and are an essential food especially for vegetarians. But, many of us are at a loss of interesting ways to include it in our diet.
While we do attempt to include it in mukhwas , raita , etc., here we present a very innovative way to consume this fibre, calcium and Omega-3 fatty acid rich seed in the form of crunchy shakarparas, which can be enjoyed as an evening snack .
- Combine all the ingredients in a deep bowl and knead into a stiff dough using water as required (approx. ¼ cup). Cover with a lid and keep aside for 15 minutes.
- Divide the dough into 2 equal portions.
- Roll out a portion into a 200 mm. (8”) diameter circle without using any flour for rolling. Trim slightly from 4 sides to get a perfect square.
- Prick it lightly with a fork and cut it into 25 mm. (1") diamond shaped pieces using a sharp knife.
- Repeat steps 3 and 4 to make more shakarparas. You will get approx. 45 shakarparas in all.
- Arrange all the shakarparas on a baking tray and bake in a pre-heated oven at 180°c (360°f) for 15 minutes or till they turn light brown and crisp from both the sides, while turning twice in between after every 5 minutes. Keep aside to cool slightly.
- Serve or store in an air-tight container.
