A quick crunchy snack. I couldn't understand the instructions about the cutting, so I had to do a little research. "Roll out dough on a floured surface to a thickness of 1/8 inch. Perforate all over with a fork and cut into 1 inch strips. Cut strips diagonally to make about 30 diamond shapes." from made sense to me. I would add more coriander next time, as the taste was a little bland. I panfried rather than deepfried, which seemed to work ok. I also did one set in the oven (sprayed with pam) and preferred that drier texture.
