Bread Sticks Recipe - How to make whole wheat bread sticks

Whole Wheat Bread Sticks
I love garlic bread sticks served at Dominos which is mildly flavoured with garlic and other herbs. I love to have it with cheesy dip they serve with.So when I saw this bread sticks recipe I definitely wanted to give a try but to make it more healthy used homemade whole wheat mulitgrain flour.I love baking with whole wheat flour also I can eat it without having to worry about my waistline :) After trying honey oats whole wheat bread I am now confident using wheat flour for my yeasted bakes.

I have not struggled with yeasted bakes so far(*touching wood*) except for once or twice but the waiting time for the dough to raise makes me I always held bake myself for trying yeasted bakes.Thank you so much Padmaja for introducing to me to instant yeast and sharing with me, it works wonders I say :)

I served it with sweet corn veg clear soup and a low fat yogurt dip.

Update : I tried the same recipe with half of maida and wheat flour here and it turned out great too.

My Notes:

  • Make sure you mark lines before you start baking itself so that its easy to break into pieces after its baked.
  • The dough rising time depend s purely on the yeast variety and ur locations climatic conditions.So after checking after 1 hr if it has not doubled then set it to rise for one more hr or so.
  • You can even try with half and half of whole heat flour and maida or with just maida alone.
  • I used homemade multigrain wheat flour.
  • If you want it more crisp then spread the batter very thin.I wanted mine to have the bread texture so spread it a bit thick.
  • You can add any topping of your choice like garlic paste,or any spice powders of your liking.You can even use any pizza seasoning.
  • Brushing the top with oil gives nice browning.
  • I used instant yeast so didn't wait for proofing as I knew mine was active.If you are using active dry yeast proof it first by adding to 1/4 cup warm water and waiting for it to bubble then use it.
