I made this recipe and it came out well!! However the matris became soft(lost crispiness) in 2 -3 days despite storing in an airtight container! What could be wrong ? Also do we need to add baking soda to the dough ? Does it help in anyway ?

Hi , Made masala mathri . Came out well . When done it was crispy but after some time it became very soft - Kind of soggy . Should it be very thin and deep fried ?

Tarla Dalal    Hi Akila, Make sure you do not deep-fry on a high flame as mentioned, keep the flame to medium they will always remain little crispier..
