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.
