Healthy Methi Mathri

Dry snack, can be stored for 1 month in air tight container.

Recipe by Rashmi Mathur of Jodhpur, IN

Ghee can be replaced by refined oil for lower calorie count... & for ghee lovers, mathri can be deep fried in ghee instead of oil.. Moreover, i use whole wheat flour instead of maida, which comes out healthy as it contains more fibres..

Ingredients vegetarian 1 servings

    • 4 cup Whole Wheat Flour
    • 1 cup Ghee
    • 3 tsp Salt
    • 1-1/2 tsp carrom seeds/ajwain
