About this recipe

These crispy breadsticks are a keeper! Quick and easy homemade breadsticks are perfect with many dips or as an irresistible snack. This will be the talk of your dinner party. Za’atar spice, sumac, and salt go perfectly well with these. I love serving them in a simple vase. You can oil and bake these breadsticks too. Just remember to handle them very gently. I always make more because I break a few along the way.

Notes from Rouba

  • Crispy breadsticks can be prepared up two days ahead of your event.
  • You can keep crispy bread in an airtight container for up to 4 days.

Method

Step 1.

Tear smaller pieces of the Arabic flatbread by hand enough to make two layers at the base of the vase for elevation. Cut the remaining Arabic flatbread into strips with the kitchen scissors.

Step 2.

Deep fry bread in small batches until crispy and golden in colour. Don’t overcrowd the frying pan, and make sure they’re fried evenly on all sides. They take less than a minute to fry.

Step 3.

Jazz up the flavours of your breadsticks by sprinkling them with sumac or za’atar.

Alternatively, you can toast the bread by tearing or cutting the bread, brushing it with olive oil, and baking it at 190°degrees for a few minutes until lightly browned.

Step 4.

Serve these with my delicious avocado hummus, smoky eggplant salad, and tzatziki. The simple addition of these dips with some crispy breadsticks makes the best appetizers for your grazing tables and cheeseboards.

  1. This looks like a crackle bread I loved in an east Indian restaurant in Las Vegas. Where do you find Arabic flatbread?
