To make cumin seeds cracker, combine all the ingredients in a bowl, mix well and knead into a firm dough using enough water. Divide the dough into 2 equal portions. Roll a portion into 20 cm (7.8 inches) circle in diameter, using a little whole wheat flour. Prick with the help of a fork and trim the edges from 4 sides to form a square. Cut them into 9 squares of 50 mm. (2") using a pizza cutter or a sharp knife. Repeat steps 3 to 5 to make more squares. Using the dough that was trimmed at step 4 and the edges of the rolled dough after cutting into 9 pieces at step 5, you can make 4 to 6 more crackers. Place them on a greased baking tray and bake in a pre-heated oven for 30 minutes at 160°c (320°f) or until lightly brown and crisp. Cool completely and serve or store in an air-tight container.

These crispy, healthy munchies are made with oats, maize flour and whole-wheat flour instead of refined maida which can lead to inflammation in the body. Moreover, these are devoid of sugar. So these sugar free jeera biscuits are a wise pick over store bought sugar laden biscuits.

Wheat flour and oats are 2 fibre rich ingredients which are the highlight of this healthy Indian cracker.
