Yesterday I attempted to make the crackers. First I tried to use a pasta roller to make the dough very thin and uniform, for me that was a disaster. So, I took the bull by the horns and rolled the dough out by hand. I had some issues getting it even and thin enough, but all in all not bad. I didn't have any chili powder on hand so I used some garam masala that I had made a few weeks ago. I really liked the taste.
Last night I made the dough for the next braid, it looks nice and is sleeping in the fridge until tomorrow.

They look like they turned out great!

Thanks Kim. Some were thin and crispy, some not so much.

It takes practice to roll dough evenly but I'm sure you'll be a pro in no time.

Garam Masala is new to me. Should I get some? What does it taste like?

Garam Masala is an Indian spice mix, which literally translated means "sweet mix". It's similar to curry, but without the chile heat or the tumeric. It usually has cumin, peppercorn, coriander, cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamon, and cloves. I made mine, but you can usually buy it already mixed.
