These Wheat Mathri are crunchy savory bites. You can call them fried-cookie.They are perfect for any festive celebration. A spiced snack which can be paired with a cup of Tea too.
You will enjoy making these fried-cookies.Unlike my previous Diwali Snack, this wheat mathri can’t be called super healthy. But I have replaced all-purpose flour with whole-wheat flour for a healthier version.
Diwali is a time where you end up making a variety of sweets.Our Celebration can’t ever be complicated without Indian sweets.I am planning to prepare Moong Halwa for Diwali evening. But there is always a carve for a savory bite when you have loads of sweets on your plate.This Wheat Mathri is just perfect for that role.
The hint of cumin brings an amazing flavor. I just love that.Mathris are popular in Rajasthan where you can find different varieties of it.It is also enjoyed with hot jalebi in breakfast.
In 1980 Prime Minister Indira Gandhi stunned the administration by seeking jalebi and mathri for breakfast during her visit to Mirzapur in Uttar Pradesh.Interesting isn’t it !
Some days are busy, some are lazy. Some days are neither of it.You just want it to pass. On such days I enjoy cooking even more. And I love to bake a cake or fry some Mathris.
Cooking is such a blissful thing which brings me the satisfaction of an artist.Cutting these Mathris before frying, trying to make them look alike is another fun.I used to be a helping hand to Mom as a child.There is certainly an option, you can use cookie cutters to give them different look.Prick each of the rolled mathri with a fork to avoid puffed up. That’s the trick.I have added a pinch of turmeric for that color.Have you checked my Lebanese Turmeric Cake
Wheat Mathri can be stored at room-temperature up to a week. But I am sure it will get over before that.They are so addictive! So make a good quantity.
