Mathri

M


athri or Mathi is a famous North Indian snack. This is a comfort snack as you can store it for almost a month if  stored properly in a air tight container. This is a yummy snack while traveling or picnic.  Basically these are made of all purpose flour but this time I've added some whole wheat flour too.


Ingredients
All purpose flour - 1 cup
Whole wheat flour - 1 cup
Oil - 1/3 cup
Salt - as  taste
Water to knead the dough
Oil to fry


Method


  • In a mixing bowl add flours, salt and oil. Rub the flour  between your palm til it comes to bund muthi consistency. Means if you take the flour in your fist it should hold the shape.
  • Add little warm water  at a time and knead the dough. Use as less water as possible. We need a firm dough. Cover and set aside for some time.
  • Make small ball out of the dough and roll them in 2 inch wide circles. Prick each mathri by fork or knife, so that they wont puff. I rolled them on grater to avoid this step. 
  • Heat the oil in a wok and fry few mathris at a time on medium heat. Fry them til they are golden from both the sides.
  • Enjoy hot mathris with pickles and after getting cold store them in a air tight container. 


These mathris are going to Potluck Party.
