I realise that adding chilli to everything doesn't automatically make it more African, let alone Nigerian. I mean, I'd hate to perpetuate the stereotype that we eat, drink and breathe spicy food. Well, sort of...
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1/2 cup wholegrain flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 cup sunflower oil (and a little extra for brushing)
- Warm water
- Chilli powder
Place the baking powder, all-purpose and wholegrain flour in a large mixing bowl and add the oil. Start to add the water a little bit at a time, kneading as you go along, until you have a firm and slightly elastic dough. Knead the dough for a couple of minutes to combine the ingredients.
Roll the dough out very thinly on a lightly floured surface. Grab a knife (in a non-violent way) and cut the rolled out dough into your desired shapes. Lift the crackers very gently onto to lined baking sheet and prick each one with a fork.
Mix a little water and oil in a small bowl. Brush the crackers with this oil-water mixture before sprinkling with salt and chilli.
Bake in a pre-heated oven, gas mark 6, for 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned.
