Bread Sticks - We Knead To Bake

This month for  We Knead To Bake Group, Aparna gave us a free reign! I had so many yeasted bakes bookmarked and wanted to try one of those.But somehow could never go near the oven this month! Then yesterday , I was doing the Kid's delight, Baked treats roundup and I saw Pavani's Bread sticks. So that settled the matter for me and I baked it today!

I completed the bake just a few hours back and the kids and me enjoyed it a lot!Lil Dude kept asking for the 'pizza' I had baked!Isn't he cute! The kids had it with tomato sauce while I enjoyed it with an Indian touch of Tomato chutney and Ginger tea....

I used:
Adapted from - Cook's Hideout

All Purpose Flour - 1 cup
Whole Wheat flour - 1/2 cup
Instant Yeast - 1/2 tablespoon
Luke warm water- 3/4 cup
Salt a little less than 3/4  teaspoon
Olive oil- 3 tablespoon ,divided , extra for brushing the pan
Oregano - as needed for sprinkling on top

Brush a baking tray with oil and keep aside. In a bowl, take the flours, yeast and salt. Mix. Add a little water and mix well. Then add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and mix.Add water little by little to get a dough slightly short of sticky.Spread it on the greased tray and score rectangles with a sharp knife. Cover with a damp cloth and set aside till it is puffy. I set it aside for around 2 hours.

Once the dough has puffed up, drizzle the remaining olive oil evenly over the dough and sprinkle the oregano over it and press gently.Bake in a pre heated oven at 200 Degree C for 15 minutes or till the top is brown.
Remove from the oven and transfer to a cooling rack.Once it is cool enough to handle, break into pieces along the scored line and again arrange on a baking tray and bake for another 5- 10 minutes depending on how soft / crisp you prefer. I baked for 10 minutes. It was crispy on the outside and oft on the inside.

Serve warm / at room temperature.....

Bon Appetit...
