Published on February 18, 2019

Methi  Mathri is an Indian snack usually made in many households. It is crispy, tasty and ideal to serve with tea or during mid-day.

It’s ideal to store these snacks at home, children crave quite often and they make good snacks with masala chai. It is ideal to carry during travelling.

I have many snack recipes on my blog, from crispy avalakki (poha chiwda) to nippattu and kodbole. these are essential during festivals.

    I love the methi flavour in anything. These mathris are a healthier version as you have used whole wheat flour.
