Masala Mathri/ making of tasty mathri
Written by Jayashree
Published on August 1, 2017

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.

      It can be stored in airtight jars, but let them cool before storing. We did like them at home. Thanks for the visit Kristal

    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.
