Mathri is a savoury jar snack that is commonly sold in Indian stores across the world, and is renowned as one of the most famous tea-time snacks.
This Sweet Mathri is a variant that is sure to please the sweet tooth. Made of plain flour dough sweetened with sugar and laced with spices, the Sweet Mathri has a pleasant, mildly-sweet taste and exciting crunch. You can serve it alone or with its savoury counterpart at tea-time.
It is important to make a stiff dough and to fry the mathris on a slow flame. You won’t need any water to make the dough because the ghee, milk and sugar are enough to bind the flour together.
You can also try other sweet jar snacks like the Sweet Shakarpara .
- Combine the all the ingredients in a deep bowl and knead into a stiff dough without using any water.
- Cover with a lid and keep aside for 15 minutes.
- Divide the dough into 30 equal portions.
- Take a portion of the dough and knead it between your palms and flatten it lightly.
- With help of your thumb press it in the centre to make a deep depression.
- Heat the ghee in a deep non-stick pan, deep-fry a few mathris on a slow flame till they turn golden brown in colour from both the sides. Drain on an absorbent paper.
- Cool completely and store in an air-tight container. Use as required.
