    These crackers besides being gluten-free look very wholesome, Purabi! I’d love to have dipped some of them into the flavored yogurt.

    I’ve done almost nothing with flax seeds – I’m really behind the curve, because I know they’ve become so popular! These crackers look great. We’ve been playing with cracker recipes, and these look extremely tasty. It’s so much fun to play in the kitchen, isn’t it? Good stuff – thanks.

      Oh, thanks John! Yes, these were such tasty little pieces of joy. My kids took half of them to school and ate them happily. Hubby loved it too, with my simple yogurt dip. All the crackers were over in a day…

    Hi Purabi. Love these. I use flaxmeal in place of eggs sometimes when baking, and flax oil in blender smoothies. Proud to see you reach out and try something new.

      Anthony, thanks for your motivating words. I made these crunchy crackers keeping in mind Indian taste preferences as well! These crackers were yum! I am going to make the next batch this weekend…

      I have read that people use flaxmeal in place of eggs, but never tried this egg-replacement for eggless cakes. I think, I must try this!

      Thank you for your comment, Curry and Comfort! The smell of roasted cumin seeds makes me nostalgic of my childhood days, when my mom used masalas only made at home. It reminds me of a plethora of pickles and chutneys I had, some common and some rare, made by my mom and granny!

      Hi Asha! Yes, flaxseeds (alsi) are available in India in supermarkets like Big Bazaar and HyperCITY. Brazil nuts are available in the latter one, or one can order online as well!

      Nami, these addictive baked fellas have a lightly spiced flavour, which is enjoyable even by kids. Thank you for your comment on my post!

    Purabi, your recipe and method interested me because I’m not big on the flavor of gums either. Your substitution turned out successfully and your dip sounds tasty, too!

    Great use of flax seeds Purabi. Not a great fan, I think the spices you used would beautiful blend the flavors.

    These are definitely one of the most original crackers I have seen. They also look very tasty. They would make a perfect afternoon snack for me. I must say that I have had the gum for several years and never used it! I saw it once in an Indian grocery shop and bought it out of curiosity… then I had no idea how to use it.

      Thanks for your comment, Sissi. In India, gum is called gondh and is used in making laddoos or sweet balls. These act as a binder. Whatever is the culinary use, I somehow like to stay away from this ingredient.

    I have yet to taste flax though my daughter raves about it. What I love is the flavor you put in this cracker. I’m not a fan of bland crackers. This would be a fun recipe to try. Thanks!

    Its nice to try new recipes but sometimes the outcome is not welcomed by my family. My other half will not say anything but the expression on his face will give me the message. Interesting that you had the crackers perfectly despite its your first attempt. Flaxseeds are expensive over here and I mostly depend on our local ingredients. Nevertheless, I am tempted to try out these crispy crunchy looking crackers

    Great little healthy recipe for us gluten intolerant ones. Flax seeds are so nice. I but the preground kind and put it my morning oatmeal and all kinds of things. Nice little cracker for snacking.

    It was so nice to see your comment after a long time. From your post I read that now you are living in Mumbai. Howz life? Your crackers sound wonderful. I love to use different seeds and nuts with gluten free whole grain flours. The use of curry leaves and turmeric is something new for me.

    what an intriguing flavor combo Purabi! Where do you get brazil nut, I want too 😀
    interesting that you added dried curry leafs. our curry plants are growing fast and we got some young once too so I was thinking how I could use them otherwise then in curries etc. Thanks for the idea!

    Thanks Helene. I am sure, you can order Brazil nuts online. I bought these from HyperCity Mall in Mumbai. I love the aroma of curry leaves…it increases my appetite! 🙂

    Have a great weekend, Helene!
