Crispy and flavourful, Masala Mathri can be prepared quite easily with readily available ingredients like plain flour, carom seeds and cumin seeds, and so on. A tablespoon of melted ghee, added to the dough, helps impart a flaky crispness to this delectable snack. You can make the mathris in bulk and store in an airtight container to serve with tea whenever required.

These crispy mathris are a little spicy in taste. Being a rajasthani dish, it can also be served with spicy pickle. A special care should be taken while making that it should not puff like puris. They should be crisp.
