Masala Mathari (Spicy and Crunchy Tea Snack) - Blogging Marathon # 5

Hello friends,


Today is the 2nd day of blogging Marathon # 5 which was started by Srivalli.


When I was posting recipe of Plain Mathri, I had mentioned that I will post masala mathri as well, but it just kept getting delayed. These are favorite tea time snack in our family. 


Masala Mathari (Spicy and Crunchy Tea Snack)
Ingredients
Maida (All Purpose Flour) - 1 cup
Sooji (Semolina) - 1 tbsp
Ajwain (Carom Seeds) - 1 tsp
Jeera (Cumin Seeds) - 1 tsp (Coarse Powder)
Saunf (Fennel Seeds) - 1 tsp (Coarse Powder)
Dhaniya (Coriander Seeds) - 1 tsp (Coarse Powder)
Kasoori Methi (Dry Fenugreek Leaves) - 1 tsp (crush between your palms)
Kali Mirch (Black Pepper) Powder - 1/2 tsp
Nimbu Ras (Lemon Juice) - 1 tsp
Namak (Salt) - as per taste
Hot Ghee (Clarified Butter) - 2 tbsp
Preparation
  • Knead everything into a nice poori like dough using warm water.
  • Roll them into real small sized thick pooris or make them into thick pooris in you palm itself.
  • Puncture them with fork or knife in some places (so that they don't puff up like pooris). Some of mine still did :(
  • Fry them in hot oil at medium heat till they turn golden brown.
  • Drain them in paper towel.
  • These measurements will make about 30 mathari (of the size shown in my pic).
Serving
Serve them as a snack with evening coffee or tea. This is one of favorite snacks of my son.


That's all for now. Till next post, take care.
