Perfect at Tea Time or Anytime ..Methi Mathri

Mathri ,the name takes me back to the time when i was studying in college. After every semester break when it is time to return to hostel, my Mom used to give me a bag full of snacks and among those these Mathris were my favorite. My friends used to tease me that are you bringing stones from your home as my luggage used to be so heavy. Anything is better than starving in hostel. I thought.

Recently one of our best friend was going to Chicago for new job. So first I thought of throwing a good party for him. Then Abhi suggested that since he is a bachelor it would be nice if you can make some good homemade stuffs for him. And then came the idea of making these delicious mathris and other snacks and sweet items for him. So here is my recipe for my favourite tea time snack.

Ingredients :
  • Maida /All purpose flour : 2 cups
  • Rawa : 1/2 cup
  • Kasuri Methi (Dried crushed fenugreek leaves) :about 1/2 cup ,can be adjusted according to taste
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil :1/4 cup or more to make dough
  • Ajwain : 1 Tbsp
  • Turmeric Powder : 1 Tsp Optional
  • Water to make dough
  • Oil for frying
Method :
  1. Sieve maida ,add rawa ,salt ,ajwain ,kasuri methi and turmeric powder .
  2. Mix the oil well into the flour ,oil should be evenly mixed into the flour .To test if you have added sufficient oil ,take some mixture in your palm and close .When you open your palm the dough should retain its shape .If it is not retaining the shape then add more oil this will make the mathri more crispy .
  3. Now add water a little by little to make stiff dough .
  4. Cover the prpared dough with damp cloth for about 15 mins .
  5. Now make small rounds and roll out into thick mathris .
  6. Put some marks on the rolled mathri using fork or knife .
  7. Deep fry
  8. Let them cool and store in airtight container .
Crispy mathris are ready to eat with tea .I like to eat them with achar so you can try that too .
