Spinach cheese crackers

Spinach crackers are crisp flavored with cheese and mildly spiced tasty snack. Wanted to try something new out of spinach & I came across this in one of the cooking blogs. It can be served with salsa or any kind of dip.

• 1 cup all purpose flour (maida)
• ½ cup semolina (fine sooji)
• ½ tsp salt
• ¼ tsp baking soda
• 3 tbsp butter
• ½ tsp cumin seeds
• ½ tsp chili flakes
• ½ cup grated parmesan cheese or mozzarella cheese
• ½ cup spinach puree
• Oil to frying

• Mix all purpose flour, semolina, salt, chili flakes, cumin seeds, and baking soda in a bowl together.
• Add the butter and cheese, mix well. It will be in the consistency of bread crumbs.
• Add the spinach puree and make firm dough.
• Set the dough aside and cover it with a damp cloth. Let the dough rest for at least ten minutes.
• Divide the dough in equal parts and make them into small balls. Roll the dough about into a 5-inch circle in a tortilla form. Make sure they are rolled thin.
• Slice the each tortilla in 4 pieces in triangle shape or any other shape you like.
• Heat the oil in a deep frying pan. Fry the chips until both sides are light golden in color. After chips come to room temperature they should become crisp.
• Don’t fry on high heat, it will become soft.
• Serve with any salsa or dip
