Spicy Wheat Diamond Cuts/Sesame Seeds and Wheat Diamond Cuts

Am an ardent fan of deep fried snacks but now am keeping myself away from it. But kids just love crispy fritters, obviously we cant say no to them though they have rarely deep fried snacks. When my lil one asked for a spicy snacks, i couldnt say no to him, and prepared this wheat flour based diamond cuts with loads of sesame seeds and kasuri methi. Usually we make diamond cuts with maida or all purpose flour, my today's post of this diamond cuts calls for whole wheat flour, yes i deduced the quantity of maida and went for whole wheat flour, semolina to make them more healthy and crunchy. Sesame seeds and kasuri methi added to the dough makes this diamond cuts very flavourful and absolutely nutty.

Kids loved this snacks very much and they just went on munching these beauties. They didnt even noticed the addition of kasuri methi in this diamond cuts which sounds prefect for me. Eventhough i try to feed my kids with healthy stuffs, sometimes we need to think twice to make them eat. Trust me you can feed your kids with less efforts by making this kind of healthy fritters and they will definitely enjoy them thoroughly. These diamond cuts are going to be a part of this week's blogging marathon as am running with Kid's delight - Cooking with wholegrains as theme.Sending to Srivalli's Kid's delight - Cooking with Wholegrains hosted by Kalyani.
