  • 2 cup - Maida
  • 1/4th cup - fine semolina (sooji/rava)
  • 1 tsp - salt (or less)
  • 1/8th tsp - baking powder
  • 6-7 tbsp. - warm water
  • 4 tbsp. - melted ghee/oil
  • ghee/oil for deep frying
  • How to Make Mathri:

    1. Mix the flour, salt, and baking powder in a bowl. Add the ghee and rub between your palms until it becomes a crumbly mixture.
    2. Divide the dough into small balls. Roll out all the balls and cut into slim, small squares.
    3. Heat the ghee/oil in a kadhai or deep-frying pan. Fry the mathris in batches over moderate heat. Remember not allow to the rounds to become brown, they should be a pale golden in colour. Remove from frying pan and allow to cool.
    4. Can be stored in an air tight container for up to a week.
