Spring Onion Crisp

Posted by Sweeter side of life at 22:38:00

This is a savoury snack that would probably only appeal to adults. The sight of green' is intimidating to children. In addition, these crisp contains deep fried shallots which has a unique fragrance which can be quite appalling to them as well. Made from similar ingredients as to making bread, you can actually alter the flavour by substituting grated cheese or add in toasted sesame seeds. To be able to make very thin crisp, one must make sure the gluten of the dough is fully developed.

One thing to note is that if they are too thick, they'll puff up and taste bread-like. Use a rolling pin and directly roll the dough on your baking sheet, making it as thin as possible.

These crisps taste like cousins of paper prata! I can't wait to try out cheese flavoured crisps :D

* Preheat oven to 190C

150g Plain Flour
5g Instant Yeast
3g Salt
1g Baking Soda
80ml Milk
30g Unsalted Butter
30g Spring Onions
SOme Fried Shallots


Mix all ingredients together except the last two.
Knead till smooth and elastic, cover with cliong wrap to relax for 20minutes
knead in the last 2 ingredients*
Using a rolling pin, roll dough thinly on baking pan and bake till golden brown
score the baked dough with a pizza cutter and break them apart to get a nice squares of crisp

note: mine took about 7 minutes to bake till golden brown
