Mathris are very famous North Indian snacks. Usually mathris are deep fried tea time snacks. Here we are making baked methi mathri. To make these mathris healthier I have used wheat flour. 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. Try out these mathris and please do share your comments….
(Makes about 18 mathris)
- Wheat flour 1 cup
- Semolina 1 tbsp
- Oil ¼ cup
- Fresh methi leaves, finely chopped 1/3 cup / kasoori methi 2 tbsp
- Salt 1 tsp
- Red chili powder ¼ tsp
- Garam masala ¼ tsp
- Chaat masala ¼ tsp
- Water about 2-3 tbsp to make the dough
Method of preparation:
- Preheat oven at 350°F.
- In a big mixing bowl combine wheat flour, semolina, salt, red chili powder, garam masala, chaat masala, and methi leaves well.
- Add ¼ cup oil in the flour mixture. Mix well and rub between the hands.
- Add a little water (you will be needing a couple of table spoons of water only) at a time and knead a stiff dough. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and set aside for about 15 minutes.
- Divide the dough into 18 small rounds. Make them smooth and press them between the palms.
- Roll them into semi thick rounds of 1½ inches.
- Poke the rolled balls well from both the sides so they do not puff up.
- Arrange the mathris in the baking (cookie) tray.
- Put the baking tray in the pre heated oven and bake for about 30 minutes.
- Let the mathris cool down completely before you serve them.
- These mathris can be stored in airtight containers for a month.
- Methi mathris are ready to serve. These mathris are very yummy by themselves, but you can also serve them with sweet and sour lemon pickle.
Some Tips/ Suggestions:
- You can also use cookie cutter to make different shapes of mathris.
- You can also deep fry these mathris. Mathris should be deep fried at low heat.
