Whole wheat Breadsticks

I just can't stop talking about the weather here. It was snowing non stop last week and the temperature was so low the actual feel plummeted down to -21C. Well actually its better than yesterday. With the weather so cold, I had to take a a day off for pappu. I had to calm him down with some activity and so finally we ended up making straw necklaces. It was a great passtime and it really helped in hand and eye co-ordination for the kid.

Now lets talk winter food. We have been making a lot of soups lately and I make some sort of homemade whole wheat buns to go with it. I made these breadsticks for a change and it was a winner. Pappu totally loved it, he simply soaked it in some garlic butter and devoured it.

~*What U Need*~
Warm water - 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp
Olive oil - 1 tbsp
Parmesan cheese - 2 tbsp
Sugar - 1 tsp
Garlic powder - 1 1/2 tsp
Salt - 3/4 tsp
Dried basil - 1/4 tsp
Bread flour - 1/2 cup
Whole wheat flour - 1 cup
Vital wheat gluten - 1 tbsp
Instant yeast - 1 tsp
Butter - to brush the sticks

How I Made it:
Sprinkle the yeast and sugar on the water and allow to activate for 10 mins. Take the flour, cheese, garlic powder, salt, basil and olive oil in a bowl, add the yeast water and knead or 10 mins. Cover and let rise for 45 mins to 1 hour. Once doubled, divide into 8-10 portions. Shape each into a ball; roll into a rope. Place on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 40 minutes or until doubled. Bake at 350° for 18-22 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool. Brush warm breadsticks with butter.

So thats it Folks...
