Baked spicy Bhakharwadis

Crisp, crunchy, golden , spicy treats. 
Baking is something I really enjoy and if I can get a fried food as close to frying by baking, it gives me a good high. Bhakharwadis are a delight to the palate wit their various tastes tingling on the tongue. My love for them started years ago on a train journey and the love hasn't stopped since then. The frying bit bothered me and decided to try baking them ...and lo....they came out really very well.So sharing my recipe here. I even went a step ahead and made them with atta instead of maida. Hope the affair with these beauty continues.
1 cup Atta/ whole wheat flour    
1 tbsp suji
3 tbsp oil
1-2 tsp baking powder
4 tbsp desiccated coconut
3 tbsp crushed peanuts
2 tbsp sesame 
2 tbsp Crushed garlic
1/2 tsp haldi
1/2 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp saunf pwd 
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp vinegar
1/2 tsp chilli flakes
1 tbsp amchur 
Pinch of hing
Mix all the ingredients for the dough and mix with warm water to a tight dough and keep for an hour.
Mix ingredients for the filling.
Roll the dough, spray a bit of oil and spread this filling well.
Roll into a roll and press well.
Cut into pieces and press them well such that the filling stays inside.
Put on a baking sheet, brush with oil and bake in a preheated oven at 180 deg till golden brown. 
Serve as a snack hot or keep in airtight container.
