Bosomat is an Egyptian crispy breadsticks with some sesame seeds sprinkled on top. Popular in the Country as a tea-time snack and is best served with mint tea. However these make for a perfect brunch idea too. Healthy and made with very few pantry staples, this is a first hand choice for many health freaks like me.

Recipe Notes

These breadsticks can be made sweeter too with the addition of more of sugar. Blackseeds can also be added to them along with the fennel seeds and can be made more healthy by substituting whole wheat flour in place of plain flour.
