The British call it bread stick. The italians call it grissini. Well, I am sticking with grissini for obvious, fashionable reasons. Because they are more than just bread sticks. Actually, I have decided to call them chic-ssinis. Because they are chic, stylish and so delicious, you cannot have just one. But they are so pretty and elegant that you would rather put them in your purse and take them for a glam night out in the city. You will eat them eventually, that’s for sure. Koko (my best and dear, dear friend) is an amazing cook and it would be a shame to keep this recipe away from you. Read on for the step-by-step instructions on how to make the to-die-for Koko’s grissinis (bread sticks).
|Recipe Type: Snack||Diatery Info: Vegetarian||Serving Size: 20-25 pieces|
|Prep Time: 15-20 minutes||Cook Time: 25-30 minutes||Total Time: 45-50 minutes|
300 gr wheat flour
1 cup sun flower oil
1 cup water
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
Put all the ingredients in a bowl.
Mix on low speed until combined, then on medium speed for 5 to 7 minutes until the dough is smooth and shiny.
When the dough is ready pre-heat the oven to 180 °C.
Shape the dough into a flat rectangle.
Slice a finger-sized piece from the long length of the rectangle with a sharp knife.
Roll it into a long, irregularly shaped ‘snake’ and place on the baking sheet. Continue with the rest of the dough.
To add the seeds, measure out a couple of tablespoons of seeds and coax them into a long, thin line.
Lay your snake over the seeds and press gently. Do that for all your ‘snakes.’
Place snakes on the baking sheet. Pick up one end and twist several times to create a swirl.
Bake the grissinis for 25-30 minutes. Take them out when they are golden brown.
When they are done, place them on a cooling rack to cool down.
Enjoy and stay safe. x
