    Healthy Breadsticks

    Mostly people do not associate breadsticks with a healthy food. Typically the nutritional value of breadsticks are fairly low. Some people do use sesame seeds but the amount of sesame seeds used in breadsticks are not significant to influence its nutritional values. I had all of this in my mind while I was planning to make breadsticks and decided to use 50% of whole wheat flour to boost the nutritional value of my breadsticks significantly and hence call them healthy breadsticks.

    Did you ask “What are Breadsticks”?

    Breadsticks are dry cylindrical shaped bread with a thickness of a pencil. Lanzo Torinese, a north Italian baker, invented the recipe of breadsticks. Breadsticks are served as an appetizer along with soups or garlic sauce and parmesan cheese.

    Soup Sticks / Bread Sticks

    Healthy breadsticks are always going to add to a healthy soup. Freshly baked bread at home is a delight for everyone. I am an experimental baker and never stop experimenting if a recipe of a baked product excites me. I have been experimenting with whole wheat bread, and semolina bread however, it’s time to experiment on these easy homemade breadsticks.

    How to make breadsticks

    So far, I was baking flavored bread to substitute the breadsticks, but this time I thought to make a perfect combination of soup salad and breadsticks. I love to add flavor to my bread instead of applying any spread. We all know the benefits of ginger. Who can deny the importance of ginger tea and especially in the winters? With this thought, I flavored my breadsticks with Ginger and cumin seeds.

    Trust me, the mild flavor of ginger and roasted cumin seeds, did the magic. My soup sticks turned out to be super delicious. I was happy that I finally nailed this down.

      • Praachi as we are not using any preservatives so these will stay good up to one week in an air-tight container.

        You can use garlic powder while kneading the dough to get garlic flavour.

        Thank you

      • Dear Sandhya,
        The second rise means that the dough needs to go into proofing second time.
        Yes, you brush them with milk before putting the bread in the oven.

        Regards
        Sonia
