Whole Wheat Bread Sticks/Soup Sticks Recipe

imageThese healthy and crispy bread-sticks have been baked with 80% whole wheat flour and 20% refined flour. I have added carom seeds and mixed herbs seasoning for adding flavor to bread-sticks. You can try any other herb like rosemary, parsley, basil etc.

Also, you can gently brush the top of bread-sticks with milk and sprinkle sesame seeds/ onion seeds (Instead of carom seeds ) at the time of baking. They taste delicious too.

Enjoy these scrumptious bread-sticks with soup/cheesy dip. You can try my soup recipes – Roasted Tomato Soup (With Basil), Hot n Sour Soup, Red Lentil and Carrot Soup and Sweet Corn Soup With Vegetables.

Yields : 8-10 Bread-Sticks


  • 100 Gms. Whole Wheat Flour
  • 25 Gms. Refined Flour
  • 1 Tsp Dry Yeast
  • 1/2 Tsp Salt
  • 2 Tsp Sugar
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Tsp Carom Seeds
  • 1 Tbsp Mixed herbs Seasoning
  • 90-100 Ml. Water
  • Herbed Butter (For Brushing/Optional)


  1. Dissolve yeast along with 1 Tsp of  sugar in 40 ml. lukewarm water and set it aside for 6-8 minutes till a layer of froth appears on top. Always cover the yeast bowl or put it at a dark place.
  2. Transfer whole wheat flour, refined flour, salt, remaining sugar and yeast mixture to a big bowl.
  3. Bring all ingredients together with and add olive oil.
  4. Knead a soft dough using above ingredients and remaining water. You might have to add more water, depending upon the quality of flour.
  5. Transfer dough to clean kitchen slab for further kneading.
  6. Stretch the dough back and forth using palm. Repeat this process for 10-15 minutes. Gently poke the dough with your finger. If indentation fills quickly, it is an indication that dough has been sufficiently kneaded.
  7. Transfer dough to a greased bowl and cover it with a warm cloth/cling foil. Greasing a bowl will ensure that dough does not stick to its surface while removing.
  8. Keep it at a warm place for dough to rise and double. It will take 1.5- 2 hours to double. Time will vary depending upon the warmth of place where dough is kept. I preheated the oven for 10 minutes at its lowest temperature and kept the bowl inside oven. You can also put it inside a cupboard or microwave.
  9. Once dough is doubled, knock it to remove gas bubbles formed by yeast during rising process.
  10. Sprinkle carom seeds and mixed herbs seasoning over dough and knead for a couple of minutes.
  11. Divide dough into equal parts.
  12. Roll each part to a length of approx. 6-8 inches.
  13. Transfer bread-sticks to a baking tray lined with parchment paper/ silicon mat.
  14. Repeat the process with other portions.
  15. Let them rise for 40-50 minutes.
  16. Transfer baking tray to a preheated oven and bake at 180°C for 15-20 minutes.
  17. Brush them with melted herbed butter and serve with hot soup or enjoy with a cheesy dip.
