Are you a tea lover or a fab of coffee? I am a genuine tea lover and when it comes to tea, I like snacks with it (normally). One of my tea companion is Mathri. So what is mathri? Its like flaky spiced flour cracker. The crunchy it gets, better it tastes.
My this recipe of from Punjabi style mathri (Mathri originated from Rajasthan area of India). The concept of this mathri probably would have originated from the fact that this case be preserved for long duration in jars for long duration. This one is a great snack (if you are not counting calories).
You can make these mathris by frying or baking. My recipe talks about fried version, as I personally find fried ones more tasty.
There are numerous confectionary houses which make and sell it, but best I have found is from Haldiram, and I believe this recipe of mine yields similar mathri, but rather fresh variant 🙂
The success of these mathri is in the dough and how these are fried. These needs to be thoroughly fried on low heat for that crunchy flavour.
