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).
In a mixing bowl, take all the ingredients and knead it to a semi soft dough with the help of lukewarm water. We don’t need it to be a smooth dough, idea is to get all the ingredients together in the form of dough. Cover with moist kitchen towel and let the dough rest for 20-25 minutes.
Make equal size small balls of this dough, smooth it and with your palms try to give a small patties shape. You can roll it with a rolling pin as well. Be careful to not make it thin.
Heat the oil and deep fry them on low medium heat till they are golden brown. Take them out on a kitchen towel and let these mathri cool.
Sprinkle little chaat masala if you wish and serve with your favourite hot drink.
Don’t over knead the dough.
Always fry them on low medium heat.
To give them extra taste, just sprinkle one teaspoon of chat masala over them and mix well.
