No Yeast Bread Sticks along with Tomato Hummas

I'm an all time fan of bread sticks. Whether it is soft or crunchy I just don't care. Today I was really craving for bread and I just realized that I'm running out of yeast & bread in my pantry.
I went a head and googled for some non yeast bread recipes. Here I have to thank all those who blogged about this wonderful recipe. 
Seriously it takes less time compared to the normal one's & even tastes good too. 

Coming  to Hummus I followed Ina Garten's ( Food network star) recipe. Guess what ??? It turned out yummy. 
Recently when I have been to lake Tahoe I had tasted the tomato Hummus. It was delicious.
I just couldn't wait to give a try making it.

For Bread sticks
1 cup of Maida or All purpose flour2 tsp Brown Sugar
2 tsp Baking powder
1 tsp Salt
1/2 cup Milk
Sesame seeds (optional)
1/4 cup of melted butter 

Take maida, sugar, baking powder & salt in a bowl. Slowly add little by little milk to make a  dough. Sprinkle some flour on the table and knead the dough for 2 to 3 mins.Now roll the whole dough like a chapati in any shape u like. Cut the dough in to nice long pieces using a knife.

Preheat oven @ 300deg. 
Take a baking pan line up the pieces and brush them with butter on both the sides & sprinkle some sesame on them.
Place them in the oven n bake them for 20 mins @ 350deg or till they nice and crisp.

For Hummus
1 Cup Chickpeas (Soaked in water whole night,Drained & Cooked)
2 Garlic Cloves
10 Cherry Tomatoes
1/3 cup sesame paste
2 tbs of lemon
1 tbs Red chili flakes

Microwave tomatoes for 3mins or till they soft. 
Grind tomatoes and all the ingredients to a smooth paste. 

*** Serve bread sticks warm with hummus. 

Out come: It was a yummy crispy dip.
