Mathari | Salty Biscuits Recipe | Diwali Recipe

 This Savory from Mom's kitchen,She used to make it oftnely. Me and my both brother like it with Milk very much.Instead of Biscuit Home made Mathri are Best n Healthy.

2 cup Maida
1/2 cup Rava (semolina)
1/3 cup Oil/Ghee(1/2 cup +2 tbsp)
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp carom seeds (ajwaine)
Oil to deep fry


Sift refined flour into a large bowl. 
Add semolina, Ajwaine seeds, oil and salt and mix together. 
Add sufficient water and knead into a semi-soft dough.Keep aside for 10-15 min.

Make small - small  ball,press on palm and roll but not very thin.Prick it with fork.
Another style make small ball press nicely by other palm and make a dent by thumb in center but I always use first style.
Heat sufficient oil in a kadai and deep-fry it on low heat till light golden and crisp. 

Drain on absorbent paper. Store it in air tight container.

Can add wheat flour also,then reduce maida amount.
Can use dry or fresh Coriander or Methi leaves.This Flavor also very nice.
To make masala mathri add Red chilly powder and turmeric powder.
In plain mathri can add 1 tbsp sugar also.
While you are sliding Mathri into oil flame should be High but after that fry on low flame.Don't fry on High flame otherwise inner side will be Raw.
