Ingredients for making 8 Grissinis
All purpose flour - 2 cups
Milk - 80 ml
Butter or Margarine - 25 gms
Dry Yeast - 1/2 pkt
Warm Water - 60 ml
Sugar - 1/2 tbsp
Salt - 1/2 tsp
Poppy seeds and/or Sesame seeds
Greased tray - 2
1. Dissolve the dry yeast in warm water. Add the sugar and let it rest for 5 minutes.
2. Take a pan, heat the milk and add butter. Cook until the butter gets melted.
3. In a large bowl, sift the flour and add the salt, yeast solution, and the milk-butter. Knead for about 10 minutes until the dough becomes smooth and soft.
4. Divide the dough into 8 small balls. Using your fingers, roll out each ball like a pencil shape of about 30 cms.
5. Place the pencil shaped dough on a greased tray, four at a time, and leaving a distance of about 3 cms between each.
7. Brush the surface with cold water.
10. Remove the tray and let the Grissini come down to room temperature.
11. Meanwhile, repeat the process for the second tray.
12. Reduce the oven temperature to 180°C and bake the Grissinis for again about 5-10 minutes, until they get dry and crispy.
13. Serve it with Soups or Salads. There are a wide range of ways to serve grissini. A platter of them on the table is certainly appropriate, and they can also be used as appetizers. They may also be eaten out of hand like a snack, and the more bready versions can almost make a meal in and of themselves, especially when dressed with ingredients like Parmesan.
1. Grissinis stay fresh and crispy for about a week in an air tight box. There is no need for reheating them in oven!
2. Kids love its shape and its a perfect snack for them !
