Millet Ajwain Sticks/Millet Omam Biscuit is a wholesome and healthy breadstick made out of millet flour.

Usually, the Ajwain sticks are prepared using Refined flour (Maida) and it is baked. However, this recipe contains absolutely NO Maida and No Baking. These Breadsticks are super yummy and a fantastic treat for tea time hunger. Our Millet Ajwain Sticks are quite healthy as it contains all healthy ingredients and especially omam,  which is great for digestion. Generally, the breadsticks are prepared at home and given to babies while they are in the teething stage. These Millet Ajwain Sticks are an interesting and healthy way to introduce millets in your baby's diet and also they love to chew on these sticks while teething.

Millets are similar to ragi and will not do any harm to your baby, however, few babies might develop allergies so I would suggest you consult your pediatrician before introducing any new food.

You can prepare these Millet Omam biscuits in bulk and store it in an airtight container and it stays good for even a month's time. 

In this recipe, I have used the "Maha Millet" brand and used the "Multi millet atta" product which contains Foxtail Millet, Kodo Millet, Little Millet, Prosol Millet, Barnyard Millet, Sorghum Millet, Pearl Millet, Flax Seeds, Methi. 

PS: Remember, the dough isn't super smooth like "chapati dough" so care needs to be taken when you roll them. While using your roller, apply gentle pressure and roll evenly. Also in this recipe, I have used Bansi Rava in this recipe and if you don't have one, you can use any normal suji/Rava.

Shall we dwell on the recipe now???

  • 1/2 cup Besan/Chickpea Flour

3) Knead the flour to form a soft and nonsticky dough.

4) Divide the dough into two balls of equal size.

5) Take one dough ball and roll it on a lightly dusted rolling board as shown in the picture.

6) Use a pizza cutter to trim out the uneven edges and add them to the rest of the dough. Please refer picture for clarity.

7) Now, heat the oil again. Meanwhile, cut the sticks using the pizza cutter or knife. 

8) Once the oil is hot enough, take out the millet ajwain sticks carefully and drop one by one in the hot oil. If your sticks are sticking to the rolling board or breaks while you try to take out from the board, you can use flat spatulas to slowly remove them.
