I had a contemplation about christening this starter. And finally it is, wheat crispies, the name which seems to be simple and apt…ok..so about this dish…Some times, it would become the need of the hour, to make people/kids what they eat everyday, look different, eat with enthusiasm and eagerness and not to disappoint them in this endeavour. One of those effort lead to this bite size whole-wheat crispies. It’s totally healthy, so you can feed your beloved ones with this crispies very often as a starter or as a snack.
It’s quick to make, highly customisable and loaded with nutrition. What more is expected in the starter/snack. I have added picador chillies, cherry tomatoes, sweet corns, egyptian onions spiced with mixed dried herbs – from the readily available bottled herbs – and some cottage cheese/paneer. This can be adopted to your taste/preference…numerous permutations, combinations
Note – you can also make it bite size pizza with ready pizza base or with added yeast.
