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. Gujarati mathri is a sweet variant made with plain flour dough sweetened with sugar and laced with spices.

This meethi mathri – tea time snack has a pleasant, mildly-sweet taste and an exciting crunch along with little flakiness. Deep frying in ghee further accentuates its rich aroma and flavour. You can serve it alone or with its savoury counterpart – Masala Mathri at tea-time.

A pinch of nutmeg adds a contrasting and yet pleasing flavour to the maida ki meethi mathri – jar snack. However, nutmeg is a very strong spice, so ensure to not add more than a pinch.

Tips for sweet mathri. 1. You won’t need any water to make the dough because the ghee, milk and sugar are enough to bind the flour together. We suggest you add milk gradually, as often the quantity of liquid required to knead the dough depends on the quality of the flour. 2. It is important to make a stiff dough and to fry the mathris on a slow flame. 3. Ensure to cool them completely before storing, to maintain their crispiness.

You can also try other sweet jar snacks like the Sweet Shakarpara.
