Baked Mathri

Mathris are very famous North Indian snacks. Usually mathris are deep fried tea time snacks, but here we are making baked mathri. To make these mathris healthier I have used wheat flour, and semolina along with all purpose flour (maida). The good thing about mathris is that they can be stored in air tight containers for a month or even longer. These are good finger snacks for parties or for evening tea, to make them attractive I have made mini heart shape Mathris. Try out these mathris and please do share your comments….
