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.
- Combine all the ingredients in a deep bowl and knead into a stiff dough using enough water.
- Divide the dough into 5 equal portions.
- Roll out one portion of the dough into a 100 mm. (4”) diameter circle.
- Pinch the edges of the rolled mathri to form a design. (as shown in image 1)
- Prick the mathri with a fork at regular intervals. (as shown in image 2)
- Repeat steps 3 to 5 to make 4 more mathris.
- Heat the oil in a deep non-stick kadhai and deep-fry 3 mathris at a time, on a medium flame for 8 to10 minutes or till they turn golden brown in colour from both the sides.
- Drain on an absorbent paper.
- Repeat step 7 to deep-fry 2 more mathris in one more batch.
- Serve or store in an air-tight container.
