Savoury rice crackers are very light, thin and as crispy as chips. It is vegetarian, gluten free and the most important part is, it is very easy to make.
I started making rice crackers at home, since I’ve discovered the suspicious amount of MSG in my favourite rice cracker packages. Making rice crackers at home not only help me to avoid MSG and too much sodium but also allow me to play with the flavours in the crispy textures.
This Japanese inspired rice cracker with Nori (seaweed) is very crunchy and flavourful. It makes a good appetizers or snacks and keeps your casual get-together party going. When I was in Thailand, my book club friends demanded me bringing freshly baked rice crackers along every time. They flow smoothly in the party, and they’re also very good with kids.
Coarsely chopped nori added a wonderful flavour and exciting textures to the crispy crackers. It was so subtle and perfect.

These crackers were super crispy and crunchy. Yaseen came back from school just in time I pulled the second batch out of the oven. He kept munching on these seaweed crackers like a little caterpillar gobbled on the green leaves. The whole tray of crackers was vanished in no time. He told me to bake this again tomorrow…with sticky, honey and soy glaze.
Have a beautiful day,
