Methi Mathri ~ Recipe of Indian Snacks
For Holi, I had prepared few Indian snacks like Methi Mathri and Namakpare. Mathris are savory flaky deep fried crackers made with flour, ghee, water and ajwain. The classic Indian snack is very popular namkeen in North Indian states especially Rajasthan and Punjab and is served with achaar (pickle) as a tea time snack. It is prepared for festivals like Diwali, Holi and Karwa Chauth. The mathri dough is flavored with an assortment of spices like anardana (dried pomegranate seeds), tymol seeds (ajwain), cumin (jeera), black pepper (kala mirch) and dried fenugreek leaves (kasuri methi).
Today’s Methi Mathri recipe is flavorful and when served with mirchi ka achar it is addictive. A must try Namkeen!
