Matri/Mathri - A Rajasthani Snack

I We at home like fried snacks… who doesn’t love them? Some like me eat and then work out, some crib about fried food and then eat, some eat and feel the guilt, and few just look at them and enjoy ;).

You can make these deep fried crisps and enjoy!




Ingredients:

2 cups All Purpose flour / Maida
1/2 cup Sooji /semolina
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ajwain/ vonvon(in konkani)/carom seeds
4 tbsp oil
3/4 cup lukewarm water (use as needed)
Oil to fry

Method:

  1. Mix all dry ingredients, except oil for deep frying and water.
  2. Then water little by little kneading into nice dough(make sure its not to soft or neither too hard but must be stiff).
  3. Cover and keep for 15 minutes.
  4. Break into small portions; roll in 1" wide rounds.
  5. Keep a little thicker than puris. Prick with a fork at least 2 to 3 places to avoid from puffing.
  6. Finish for all dough.
  7. Heat oil in a frying pan; add some matri at a time.
  8. Fry till lightly golden, flip side and repeat, fry till they turn crisp(do not fry on high heat as the matris will brown but not be crisp)
  9. Drain on a paper towel and cool.
  10. Store in an airtight container.




This quantity yields 40 matris 

Some serve this with spicy pickle, but I like to munch these just like that. 


Enjoy and Happy Cooking!
