Crispy and flavourful, Masala Mathri can be prepared quite easily with readily available ingredients like plain flour, carom seeds and cumin seeds, and so on.

A tablespoon of melted ghee, added to the dough, helps impart a flaky crispness to this delectable snack. You can make the mathris in bulk and store in an airtight container to serve with tea whenever required.

I made this recipe and it came out well!! However the matris became soft(lost crispiness) in 2 -3 days despite storing in an airtight container! What could be wrong ? Also do we need to add baking soda to the dough ? Does it help in anyway ?

   Hi Sandya, Make sure the flame you are deep-frying is medium and not slow or high, that is very imp.

Hi , Made masala mathri . Came out well . When done it was crispy but after some time it became very soft - Kind of soggy . Should it be very thin and deep fried ?

   Hi Akila, Make sure you do not deep-fry on a high flame as mentioned, keep the flame to medium they will always remain little crispier..
