70gsplit red lentils* see Recipe Notes
2tspplain flourplus extra for flouring
½tspdried ground coriander
¼tspdried ground turmeric

Preheat oven to 180°C fan. Line two baking trays with greaseproof paper.
Spread cooked lentils on one of the baking trays. Bake in oven for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and transfer to a small bowl to cool.
Add melted butter to lentils and mix with a fork.
Add flour, cumin, coriander, turmeric, mustard powder, salt and pepper to the lentils. Mash with a fork until evenly combined. Bring dough together with your hands and place between two sheets of lightly floured greaseproof paper. Roll out to 3 mm thickness with a rolling pin. Cut out desired cracker shape with a biscuit cutter or freehand with a sharp knife (I cut out twelve 4 cm wide x 7 cm long rectangles). Carefully transfer the crackers to a lined baking tray. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes until golden and crisp. Remove from oven and cool crackers on a wire rack.
