Methi Mathri

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….
