Plain Mathari and few awards to brag

Hello friends, 

Here is a snack that my son simply loves and can be made anytime, though it is really famous to be made in Diwali. My son has been asking me to make this for while now, so I did it yesterday :)  The measurements given below make about 12 mathris of the size shown in the picture (about 2 - 2.5 inch diameter).

Plain Mathari - मठरी 

Maida (All Purpose Flour) - 1 cup
Sooji (Semolina) - 1 tbsp
Ajwain (Carom Seeds) - 1 tsp
Hot Ghee (Clarified Butter) - 1/4 cup
Warm water - 1/8 cup
Salt - as per taste

  • Knead everything into a nice poori like dough.
  • 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) - as mine were little thick, I didn't puncture them as I knew they won't puff up.
  • Fry them in hot oil at medium heat till they turn golden brown.
  • Drain them in paper towel.

Serve them as a snack with evening coffee or tea or kids (like mine) will love to eat it just like that every time they pass by

Now, here are some beautiful awards shared by 2 of my wonderful blog friends.

Hi. This is used to be my favorite chidhood snack. I avoid this now simply for the calories but why should kids worry abt that.
