Mathri is a popular Rajasthani snack, that is usually had with a cup or tea or with pickle. It is crispy, flaky, mild spicy and tasty. It’s been one of the favourite at home. Masala mathri is a slightly modified version to the regular one.

Mathri is usually made with all purpose flour. But it can be made healthier by mixing equal quantity of wheat flour along with it, for now I am enjoying this version.

  1. I’ve never had them before but they sound and look super yummy! I’ll have to give this a try one of these days and maybe try them with some Cuban coffee 🙂

  2. Jayashree, Mathri is a favorite in our home too. I love your detailed step by step recipe. they look so yummy that I would finish the whole batch with a couple of cups of tea 🙂

  3. Oh this is too tempting as mathris are my all time favorite snack and I’m trying to avoid fried snacks 🙁 I too mix both wheat and plain flour. Also sometimes add a bit of jowar flour.
