Herbed Wheat-Barley Bread Sticks

Bread sticks are crispy sticks prepared usually for an appetizier, they are usually confused with baguette, famous french bread, this grissini are originated in Turin and the surronding areas in Italy, its seems these bread sticks have been created in 14th century which was invented by a baker in northern Italy..These bread sticks are considered to be Spanish and Italian peoples favourite bread...Bread sticks are usually prepared with hands which were thicker, longer, often straight or sometimes twisted and has more bread like texture..My version of bread sticks is prepared very healthy by using whole wheat flour, barley flour, cornmeal, spiced with crushed cumin seeds, pepper powder and herbed with dry basil & dry thymn leaves..I prepared this bread sticks as vegan version by adding olive oil instead of butter..With creamy cheesy dip these bread sticks tastes fantastic and we enjoyed having these bread sticks for our snacks with cornkernels cream hummus and creamy ricotta dip..


1cup Whole wheat flour
1/2cup Barley flour
1/2cup Cornmeal
1tsp Baking soda
1/2tsp Baking powder
1/4cup Olive oil
1/2tsp Crushed cumin seeds
1/4tsp Pepper powder
1/2tsp Dry basil leaves
1/4tsp Dry thymn leaves
Salt
Water

Take together the whole wheat flour, barley flour, cornmeal, salt, dry basil leaves, dry thymn leaves,crushed cumin seed, pepper powder, baking soda and baking powder in a large vessel, add gradually the olive oil and turn as crumble like texture, add gradually the water and knead as soft dough..close the dough with lid and keep them aside for half an hour..

Take a golf ball sized dough and roll them as long sticks..Arrange a baking sheet over a baking tray and place the rolled long sticks one by one with some space in between, meanwhile preheat the oven at 350F..once the dough get finished, bake the bread sticks for 15minutes in middle rack until they turns golden brown..keep aside and let them cool..

Enjoy with any sort of dips or cream cheese!!
