Spicy Mathri


Maida (Refined flour) – 2 cups

Sooji/ Rava (Semolina) – 1/4 cup

Salt to taste

Black Peppercorns – 1/2 teaspoon (crushed or coarsely ground)

Baking Powder – 1 pinch

curd – 2 table spoons

warm water – enough to knead

Ghee/ oil – 4 – 5 table spoons

Ghee/ Oil – for deep frying

Method of Preparation:

Make a firm dough by mixing Maida, Ghee/ Oil, salt,pepper,curd and water, –  along with a pinch of baking powder.

Cover with a moist cloth and allow the dough to rest for 1/2 an hour.

Make lemon sized balls and roll them into circles. Pierce with a fork as we do not want mathris to puff up.

Heat Ghee/ Oil in a pan for frying the mathris.

Slowly put the rolled mathris into the oil and fry them till it is light golden in color.

Drain excess oil by placing them on tissue paper or kitchen napkins.

Binge on the scrummy Mathris!
