I love experimenting with new recipes and trying to avoid too many additives and unnatural flavours etc.  When we are entertaining I will often get a pita or lavosh bread and spray it with oil and sprinkle on some garlic and herbs and place in the oven until crispy.  It just makes a change to the normal crackers.  Well the other day I came across a recipe for crunchy rice crackers and just had to try it.  I love the Sakata plain crackers so thought I would try and make my own.

50 g oil
60 – 80 g water

Place 110g rice in basket and rinse.  Add 900g water to TM bowl and cook for 35 minutes at Varoma temperature on speed 1.

If dough hasn’t formed into a ball gradually add extra water through lid
